(late 7th century),

Irish abbot of Bosham. This devout but uninfluential abbot with five or six monks was found by Wilfrid when he evangelized Sussex (681–6). Nothing is known of him, but his name occurs in a few ancient martyrologies. Challoner's Memorial (for convenience only) places him on 18 April with Deicola of Lure.

Bede, H.E., iv. 13;R. Challoner, Memorial, p. 21.
