Apollonius, St

Apollonius, St.

a solitary and deacon in the Thebaid; was. taken prisoner at Antinoe, in Egypt, in 311. The judge who presided over his trial condemned him to be burned with Philemon, whom he had converted when in prison; but, "the fire being miraculously quenched," he was carried before the prefect of Alexandria, who caused them both to be cast into the sea with his first judge, who, together with many people, had been converted by the miracle which he had seen. The Latins commemorate them on March 7. See Ruinart, p. 487. See also APOLLOS, ST.
