According to my friend C.T., Saints Justina and Cyprian were martyred together by being boiled alive.  He was some kind of a vagrant bishop, and a magician and a sorcerer.  She was a virtuous Christian woman who defeated all his magic with the sign of the Cross.  
C.T. Is currently working on a paper on Cyprian, so I made him an icon.  The fields and the waters around them are to commemorate Antioch, where he lived, but also Norway and Portugal — the ship at center-right commemorates the interest that he aroused among seafaring peoples.
