(Saint) (June 6) (5th century) An Egyptian monk of holy life whom the inhabitants of a neighbouring city insisted on having as their Bishop. The Patriarch was asked by the reluctant Nilammon to consent to a delay while he prayed. Then, kneeling down and representing his reluctance to Almighty God, he suddenly passed from this life, A.D. 403.
