^When the pro-Arian Emperor Valens (364 to 378 AD) AD) lived in Nicomedia, a committee of eighty Orthodox clergy visited him to talk about the issue of Arius. These Holy Martyrs had a martyric end, after having been put on a ship which was burned near Dakyvizi (or Dakymizi).
^"ELGIVA was the wife of King Edmund, and mother of his successors, Edwig and the great Edgar. She was a woman of many virtues, and greatly venerated for her piety and supernatural gifts. She abounded in alms-deeds and every good work, her sweetness and piety were obvious to all who beheld her, and she had an utter contempt of vain ornaments and dress. Elgiva had moreover the gift of prophecy in a remarkable degree, and by her prudent counsel was a main support to her illustrious son, Edgar, who held her in the highest respect. Through her liberality, the Monastery of Shaftesbury was rebuilt or enlarged, and in that sanctuary her sacred relics reposed. The name of the Saint in the ancient English language was Ælgifu, Elgiva or Algyva being the Latin form adopted by the chroniclers."
