Sant’Adriano di Caesarea
Hadrian had to suffer martyrdom together with Eubulus on 5 or 7 March 309 which, according to what Eusebio testified was the sixth year of the persecution.
Since the two men had come to Caesarea in Palestine to provide their help to the local martyrs, they were unfortunately discovered and condemned to be torn to pieces by the beasts, as they had refused to deny their faith in Christ.
Hadrian, after being seriously wounded by a lion, was finished with the sword.
From the Roman Martyrology:
"In Caesarea Palestine, St. Hadrian, martyr, who, during the persecution of Emperor Diocletian, on the day when the inhabitants used to celebrate the feast of Fortune, by order of the Governor Firmilian, was for his faith in Christ at first it was thrown to a lion and then slaughtered with the sword.
