(Saint) Bishop (March 16) (Date unknown) Registered as Bishop of the people of Auvergne. But no similar name is to be found in the Catalogues of the Sees of Auvergne. Modern opinion tends to identify him with Saint Patrick of Ireland and to attribute the mistake of the Martyrologies to some copyists writing “Arvernis” for “Hibernis.”
