Seven Sleepers:

Seven noble sleepers of Ephesus hid themselves in a cave in order to escape from the persecution (punishment) of Christians. The entrance (doorway) of the cave was blocked up. The seven men slept there for nearby two hundred years and then they came out, still youths in the region of the younger Theodosius. The two lovers in “The Good Morrow” composed by John Donne slept for a long, long time and it was only when they woke up that they started making love to each other.
