The holy and glorious [[Virgin-martyr]] '''Piama of Egypt''' (also ''Piamun'' or ''Piamon'') lived during the fourth century.  Her [[feast day]] is celebrated on [[March 3]].
From the [[Prologue of Ohrid]]:
:''For the sake of Christ she refused to marry, and gave herself to asceticism in her mother's house. She took only a little food every other day, and spent her time in prayer and meditation, being gifted with insight. She departed this life peacefully, commending her soul to the Lord, in about the year 377.'' [http://www.westsrbdio.org/prolog/prolog.cgi]
