Alexander of Lyons

Alexander Of Lyons, a physician and martyr, was a native of Phrygia. During the persecution of the churches of Lyons and Vienne, he was exposed with another Christian to be devoured by the wild beasts in the amphitheater, which suffering was endured with great fortitude. The death of Alexander took place A.D. 177 and his memory is celebrated June 2, the same time as that of the other martyrs of Vienne and Lyons. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.
