Accepting the dates in the short version of Eusebius of Caesarea's De martyribus Palestinae as correct and assuming that in defining the holidays and the days of the week the author followed the Christian calendar of Caesarea - which was not identical with the Roman one - it seems likely that the martyr Apphianus was executed not on a simple Friday (MP rec. brev. 4, 15: ἡμέρᾳ παρασκευῆς), but on Good Friday (ἡμέρᾳ Παρασκευῆς).
