Pagan imperial Roman consul and magistrate who conducted the trial against Saint Firmina of Amelia for her faith. Her beauty, her strength and her resolve caused him to fall for her, but when he tried to force himself on her physically, he became paralyzed until she prayed over him. This demonstration of the power of her faith caused him to convert to Christianity. Martyred by order of his magisterial replacement, Megezio, in the persecutions of Diocletian.
