Basiliscus, Bishop of Comana


Resource Toolbox

Basiliscus , martyr, bp. of Comana, martyred with Lucianus at Nicomedia under Maximin, a.d.312 (Pallad. Dial. de V. St. Chrys. xi., misreading, however, Maximian for Maximin). St. Chrysostom, when exiled, was received upon his journey in a "martyrium," built some five or six miles out of Comana in memory of Basiliscus, and there died and was buried (Theod. H. E. v. 30; Soz. viii. 28; Pallad. as above; Niceph. xiii. 37). Basiliscus is said to have been shod with iron shoes, red hot, and then beheaded and thrown into the river ( Menol. in Baron. May 22).
