Saint Penelope was one of the forty Ascetics and students of Deacon Saint Amun, a native of Adrianople Thrace. At that time, in 305 AD, the Roman emperor Licinius had issued a decree to exterminate Christians who refused to worship idols. Agia lived and martyred in this terrible time, together with her sisters and their teacher Ammun.


These women did not succumb to the challenges of the tyrant Likinios, as a result of which they suffered horrible tortures, as it is written in the Month of September: "Memory of the Forty women martyrs, virgins and hermits and Amun deacon and their teacher". By the decision of the tyrant Licinius, "ten were thrown" into the fire, "and eight after their teacher Ammun were beheaded", another ten were killed with a sword "by mouth and heart", six were stabbed with knives and blood iron glowed in the mouth you receive to the Lord they went out ". The Orthodox Christian Church commemorates them on September 1 of each year.
