Centurion Luxurius, with Camerinus and Cisellus, Martyrs 21 Aug Transferred

A good and ancient history at the link of these three martyrs,  who refused to sacrifice under Diocletian persecution of the Church and were tortured and beheaded. Luxiurius was likely and Optio or Centurion from reading the history. The others were neophyte youths: 
The Psalm 85, referred to in the history that opened Luxurius' eyes and heart, is Psalm 86 by our reckoning.. here is a link

O Almighty God, by whose grace and power thy holy martyrs
Luxurius, Camerinus and Cisellus triumphed over suffering and were faithful even unto
death: Grant us, who now remember them with thanksgiving,
to be so faithful in our witness to thee in this world, that we
may receive with them the crown of life; through Jesus Christ
our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy
Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
