(Saint) (June 6) (1st century) One of the seven deacons ordained by the Apostles (Acts 6:5). He converted the Samaritans, baptised the eunuch of Candaces, Queen of Ethiopia (Acts 8), and was the host of Saint Paul at Caesarea (Acts 21:8). His four daughters (Acts 21:9) are honoured as Saints with him. There is a tradition among the Greeks that Saint Philip became Bishop of Tralles in Lydia (Asia Minor), and there suffered martyrdom.
