He went to Rome with them, where all three suffered martyrdom under Commodus. The relics of Flora and Lucilla were transferred to Arezzo in the ninth century. Most of the hagiographic material on these martyrs originated in Tuscany between the ninth and twelfth centuries. The appendix presents an edition of the "Augmentatio passionis Florae et Lucillae."
