From the Office of Matins (Tridentine, 1910):

Lectio 9
Commemoratio S. Priscae Virginis
Prisca, nobilis virgo Romana, tredecim annos nata, Claudio imperatore, christianae fidei accusata, eiusdem jussu ducta ad Apollinis templum, ut idolis immolaret, cum rem detestaretur, colaphis caesa, in carcerem traditur: atque inde emissa, cum in fidei constantia perseveraret, affecta verberibus, ferventique adipe delibuta, rursus in carcerem includitur. Post triduum in amphitheatrum producta, leoni objicitur: qui suae feritatis oblitus, humiliter se ad ejus pedes abjecit. Quae postea in ergastulo triduum inedia afflicta, in equuleo suspenditur, et ungulis ferreis excarnificata in rogum injicitur, unde etiam mirabiliter evasit incolumis. Denique extra Urbem capite abscisso, virginitatis palmam martyrii corona cumulavit Cujus corpus via Ostiensi, decimo ab Urbe milliario, a Christianis decimo quinto Kalendas Februarii sepelitur.
V. Tu autem, Dómine, miserére nobis.
R. Deo grátias.

Commemoratio for St Prisca, Virgin and Martyr.
Prisca was a noble Roman maiden, who at thirteen years of age was accused of Christianity before the Emperor Claudius. By his command she was taken to the temple of Apollo to sacrifice there, and when she refused, was buffeted and sent to prison. She was taken out from thence again, but as she still held steadfastly to the faith, they flogged her, poured boiling tallow upon her, and sent her back a second time. She was at last thrown to a lion in the amphitheatre, but it quietly lay down at her feet. She was starved for three days in a slaves' prison house, and then tortured upon the rack. Pieces of flesh were next torn from her body with iron hooks, and she was thrown on a burning pile. She marvellously still remained alive, and was accordingly beheaded outside the city. Thus she added the crown of martyrdom to the palm of virginity. The Christians buried her body at the tenth milestone on the road from Rome to Ostia on the eighteenth of January.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.
