Book of Saints – Epitacius and Basileus


EPITACIUS and BASILEUS (Saints) Martyrs (May 23) (1st century) Epitacius (variously written Epictetus, Epictritus, etc.) and Basileus, both looked upon as Bishops of the Apostolic Age, have been in veneration in Spain from time immemorial, but there has not come down to us any reliable account of their lives and asserted martyrdom.
