Emmelia of Caesarea was the wife of Basil the Elder and the mother of nine or ten children,[1] including Basil of Caesarea (born circa 330[2]), Macrina the Younger, Peter of Sebaste, Gregory of Nyssa, and Naucratius.

Emmelia—also known as Emilia or Emily—is venerated as a saint in the Eastern Orthodox Church and is said to have died in 375.[1]
