ST. ANIANUS, BY EUSEBIUS CALLED ANNIANUS, SECOND BISHOP OF ALEXANDRIA

THE acts of St. Mark tell us, that he was a shoemaker in that city, whose hand, wounded with an awl, St. Mark healed when he first entered the city. Such was his fervor and progress in virtue and learning, that St. Mark constituted him bishop of Alexandria, during his absence; and Anianus governed that great church four years with him, and eighteen years and seven months after his death, according to the Oriental Chronicle. He died in the year 86, on the 26th of November; but is named in the Roman Martyrology on the same day with St. Mark. “He was a man,” says Eusebius,1 “well-pleasing to God, and admirable in all things.” St. Epiphanius mentions a church in Alexandria built in his honor.2
