Although St Hermione's birth date is unknown, she died in 117 AD. She was precongregation, which meant that she was canonized before the steps were put into place. She also does not have any patronages, but is a martyr of Ephesus. She was told to renounce Christ, and when she refused she was struck in the face several times, all of which she endured happily. She was released after this failed, but was later brought back by another man. They beat her, pierced her feet with nails, and put her in a boiling pot of lead, tar, and brimstone. But these attempts failed as the fire in the pot went out and Hermione remained unharmed. Still not satisfied, she was placed on a skillet, but remained neutral and sang praises to God the entire time. She was sentenced to be beheaded, but when they went to chop off her head, their hands withered and they asked her to pray for them. She died a martyr in 117 AD. Her feastday is September 4.
