Martyr (3century), born Nola, Italy. Ordained by Bishop Maximus of Nola, he was imprisoned during the persecution of Decius, but was set free by an angel. Refusing the episcopacy of Nola which the citizens urged upon him, he continued his duties as auxiliary; he devoted himself to the poor, among whom he distributed his inheritance. His sufferings have merited the title of martyr. Represented chained in a dungeon. He was buried at Cimitile, near Nola. Feast, Roman Calendar, January 14,.
