St Photine of Samaria and those with her

(John 4:1-42) "Photine" was the Samaritan woman who encountered Christ at Jacob's well. In Rome, under the persecutions of Emperor Nero [tba], she received the crown of martyrdom along with her two sons (St Photinos and St Joses), their friend (St Sebastianos, Duke) and her five sisters (St Anatole, St Photo, St Photis, St Paraskeve and St Kyriake).

They are all celebrated in the Orthodox Church February 26.

There is some literature to suggest that St Photine had six sons.
