(Saint) Bishop, Martyr (January 21) (2nd century) Persistent tradition identifies this Saint with the Publius, “chief man of the Island of Malta” (Acts 28:7), the host of Saint Paul after his shipwreck. Converted to Christianity, he is said to have become Bishop of Athens, and to have suffered martyrdom under Trajan, about A.D. 112.
