Quintian (Quinctianus), Lucius and Julian (Julianus) are venerated as saints and martyrs by the Roman Catholic Church. According to the Roman Martyrology, they were inhabitants of North Africa who were killed during the persecutions of the Vandal king Huneric (476–484 AD), who was an Arian.However, the date of their martyrdom may be conjectural. They are the only ones named in a group of sixteen martyrs, which included several women.
According to the Catholic Encyclopedia , Quinctianus was a bishop and was probably the same person as a bishop named Urcitanus.
The Martyrologium Hieronymianum mentions other African martyrs of this same name on other feast days; however, no other information is included for the martyrs placed under the different feast days.
The Great Synaxaristes of the Orthodox Church mentions that saints Quintianus, Lucius and Julianus were martyred together with nineteen other Christians.
Pope Stephen I was the Bishop of Rome of the Roman Catholic Church from 12 May 254 to his death in 257. Of Roman birth but of Greek ancestry, he became bishop after serving as archdeacon of Pope Lucius I, who appointed Stephen his successor.

Rictius Varus was a Vicarius in Roman Gaul at the end of the 3rd century, around the time of the Diocletianic Persecution. The Roman Martyrology contains many references to the prefect Rixius Varus, who is said to have persecuted hundreds of Christians. In Christian hagiography he later repented and became a Christian martyr himself, and is regarded a Saint in the Eastern Orthodox and Roman Catholic Churches, with his feast day on July 6.

The Catholic Church recognizes the individuals of Lucius, Absalom, and Lorgius as Saints due to their recorded suffering and death in Caesarea, a location within Cappadocia. St. Lucius is thought to have been a Bishop of Spanish heritage. Unfortunately, little is known about these Christian martyrs, with even their names being uncertain, although they are commemorated during the holy calendar day of March 2.
