Saint '''Verena''' of the Theban Legion departed on the fourth day of [[Coptic Calendar|Thout]] ([[September 14]]). She was brought up in the Theban region (modern day Luxor in Upper Egypt) in a noble [[Christian]] family, who handed her over to Sherimon, [[Bishop]] of Bani Suwayf, who in turn taught her and [[baptism|baptized]] her. Saint Verena joined the Theban Legion in its mission to Rhaetia (modern-day Switzerland) and was a relative of Saint Victor of the Theban Legion. The soldiers' relatives were allowed to accompany them in order to look after them and take care of their wounds.
