Symbolism and application of the item

It may be interesting, that there are 5 saints Victorias. This pendant icon is dedicated the holy martyr Victoria, who died together with her brother saint martyr Acisclus in 304. Both of them lived in Cordoba. They suffered martyrdom during the persecution of Diocletian along with his sister Victoria. Their feast day is 17 November. After they were arrested, Acisclus and Victoria were tortured. According to tradition, Victoria was killed by arrows, and Acisclus was beheaded. Their home was turned into a church. Acisclus and Victoria are represented in art as a young man and woman crowned with roses. Acisclus, along with his sister Victoria, are patron saints of Córdoba, and their cult was venerated throughout Hispania and southern France, especially in Provence. There was a minor church dedicated to Saint Acisclus on the slopes of Montserrat.

This icon pendant could be a nice present to any youth, especially to a brother or sister.
