Icon of St Sabinus of Egypt
The Holy Martyr Sabinus was the administrator of the Egyptian city of Hermopolis. During a persecution of Christians under the emperor Diocletian (r. 284-305), St Sabinus and some like-minded companions hid in a remote village.

His hiding place was revealed by a certain ungrateful beggar who had brought him food. The saint used to feed him and help him with money, but the man betrayed him for two pieces of gold. Sabinus was seized with six other Christians, and after torture they were all drowned in the Nile in 287.

His feast day is March 16.
