S. BASILISCUS, BISHOP OF COMANA IN PONTUS, M.
HE received the crown of martyrdom together with
St. Lucia, at Nicomedia, in 312, under the tyrant Maximinus Daia.
Peace being soon after restored to the church, his body was honorably
brought back to Comana. St. Chrysostom died in the Presbyterium, or
community of the clergy belonging to the church of St. Basiliscus.
The martyr had before admonished the priest in a dream to prepare a
lodging for his brother John; and he comforted St. Chrysostom by a
vision, in which he bade him be of good courage, for the next day
they should be together. See Palladius in vita Chrys. Theodoret, and
