(Saint) Bishop (December 14) (4th century) A Bishop in the Island of Cyprus, of which he was a native. In the persecution under Diocletian‘s colleague, Galerius, he, with many other Christians, was condemned to lose an eye, and to servitude in the mines. After the peace of the Church he assisted at various Councils, and we hear of him as late as A.D. 347. He is in great veneration in the East.
