Disciple of Saint Cyprian of Carthage. When revolt erupted in Carthage in 259, during a period of persecution by Valerian, the procurator Solon blamed it on the Christians, and began suppressing them. Flavian was Arrested, tortured, and martyred with Saint Montanus of Carthage, Saint Lucius of Carthage, Saint Victorius of Carhage, Saint Julian of Carthage, and five companions whose names have not come down to us.
