from Wikipedia

Saint Victor of Marseilles was a Christian Martyr. He is venerated as a saint in the Roman Catholic Church and the Eastern Orthodox Church.

Saint Victor is said to have been a Roman army officer in Marseilles, who publicly denounced the worship of idols. For that, he was brought before the Roman prefects, Asterius and Eutychius, who later sent him to the Emperor Maximian. He was then racked, beaten, dragged through the streets, and thrown into prison, where he converted three other Roman soldiers (Sts Longinus, Alexander, and Felician, all of whom are considered Christian martyrs). The three were beheaded, and St Victor himself was crushed under a millstone and then beheaded, after refusing to offer incense to the Roman god Jupiter.
