main article for Saint Thyrsus of AutunArticle

(Saints) Martyrs (September 24) (2nd century) The priest Andochius was sent with a deacon, by name Tyrsus, into Gaul by Saint Polycarp, Bishop of Smyrna. Landing at Marseilles, they journeyed to Lyons, and finally established themselves at Autun in the house of a rich merchant from the East named Felix. Their host not only assisted them in their Apostolic work, but shared their dangers and sufferings, and finally their triumph (A.D. 179). Their relics were the object of great veneration, not only in the Diocese of Autun but throughout Gaul.
