(Saint) Martyr (October 29) (4th century) A Christian of Agen in the South of France, who, to escape the fury of the persecution set on foot by Diocletian, or rather by Maximinian Herculeus, had concealed himself in the neighbouring hills; but on hearing of the courage of Saint Faith at the stake, came forth and boldly confessed that he also was a Christian. With others he was beheaded A.D. 303, and his relics were later enshrined in a church dedicated in his honour.
