Catacombe di Sant'Agnese
INFO
 

The catacomb of Sant'agnese is a catacomb of Rome, on the second mile of the Via Nomentana, in the monumental complex of Saint Agnes Outside the Walls, in the modern Trieste district.
The name of the catacomb is derived from that of the virgin and martyr St. Agnes, the only martyr remembered by ancient documents buried in this catacomb. Uncertain is the date of his martyrdom, that goes back to one of the persecutions against the Christians of the third century, in particular those ordered by Decius (249-251), Valerian (257-260) and Diocletian (303-305).

The oldest literary testimony is that of Depositio martyrum (first half of the fourth century): it states that his Dies Natalis (ie the day of his death) is January 21, and was buried in the cemetery on the Nomentana, which the Depositio already called her. This information is
