Identity

In hagiography: Zayna, a bishop and martyr, and his sister Sarah, were a brother and sister pair similar to Behnam and Sara. Their cult in Tagrit was a rival to that of Behnam and Sara at Mar Mattai. Zayna was the son of Ator, a king. He became a monk and bishop. Their story was elaborate and involved dragons, healed kings, profitable caravans, and supernatural senses. The cult of Zayna and Sarah was very popular in Qaraqosh.
