bishop and martyr. The fact of his martyrdom is testified by the Martyrology of Jerome, which places it at Bouhy, where he was buried. Legend makes him Auxerre's first bishop, consecrated by Sixtus II and sent by him to Gaul. His death was occasioned by his appealing to the people of Entrains (Intaranum) to reject idolatry on the occasion of a dedication of a temple of Jupiter in the town. Feast: 16 May.
