HE was a disciple of St. Polycarp, preached the gospel in Gaul, and received the crown of martyrdom at Bergoiate upon the Rhone, his head being sawn asunder with a wooden saw, by an order of the emperor Severus, in his march through Gaul for Britain, in the year 208.* The town of St. Andiol, in Vivarez, is possessed of the treasure of his relics See Bosquet, part 2; Hist.
