Book of Saints – Aristaeus and Antoninus


ARISTAEUS and ANTONINUS (Saints) Martyrs (September 3) (Date unknown) Though the Roman Martyrology, following those of Bede, Ado and Usuard, describes Saint Aristaeus as Bishop of Capua in Italy, modern investigation inclines to identify him with Saint Aristaeon, an Egyptian Martyr, honoured by the Greeks on September 3. Similarly, the Saint Antoninus, a child-martyr associated with him, may be no other than the Saint Antoninus of either Pamiers in France or of Apamaea in Syria, commemorated in the Roman Martyrology on September 2, though the latter is usually said to have been a priest. At Capua there is no record of either Saint.
