Agapius (St.) of Palestine

Agapius (St.) Of Palestine

was exposed to the wild beasts at Cesarea in 306 (or 307) by order of Cesar Maximin, but, surviving this ordeal, was drowned on the second day after. The Roman martyrologies commemorate him Nov. 20, and again Aug. 19, with Sts. Timotheus and Thecla, which is the day on which the Greeks keep his festival. See Baillet, Aug. 19; Ruinart, p. 322, 323.'

He is, perhaps. the same with Agapius who is commemorated in the Byzantine calendar as having been martyred with his companions at Gaza on April 2. (See AGAPETUS).
