Bishop of Lyons, France. At age 90 he was one of a group of 48 Christians from the areas of Vienne and Lyon in France, who were attacked by a pagan mob, arrested and tried for their faith, and murdered in the persecutions of Marcus Aurelius. A letter describing their fate, possibly written by Saint Irenaeus of Lyons, was sent to the churches in the Middle East.
