Legend questions that Basillisa and Anastasia were noble Romans who were converted by and eventually became disciples of Sts. Peter and Paul. When the two recovered the bodies of Sts. Peter and Paul after their executions, the two were put in prison and tortured and then beheaded by order of Emperor Nero because they acknowledged that they were Christians.
