(Saint) Martyr (September 15) (2nd century) One of the fifty Christians cast at one time into prison at Lyons by Marcus Aurelius, whence the Saint succeeded in escaping to become afterwards a preacher of the Faith in the part of Gaul now known as Burgundy. He was at length (about A.D. 178) again arrested and put to death, near Châlon-sur-Saône.
