[[Image:0316sabinasegypt.jpg|thumb|80px|Right|Icon of St Sabinus of Egypt]]The Holy [[Martyr]] '''Sabinus''' was the administrator of the Egyptian city of Hermopolis. During a persecution of Christians under the emperor [[Diocletian]] (r. 284-305), St Sabinus and some like-minded companions hid in a remote village.
His hiding place was revealed by a certain ungrateful beggar who had brought him food. The [[saint]] used to feed him and help him with money, but the man betrayed him for two pieces of gold. Sabinus was seized with six other Christians, and after torture they were all drowned in the Nile in 287.
His [[feast day]] is [[March 16]].
