Andochius (Or Andocius)
saint and martyr, was a priest and disciple of St. Polycarp of Smyrna, and was sent by him to preach the Gospel to the Gauls. When in the country about Autun, he was denounced to the governor of the province as having been taken in the performance of his priestly functions at Sedeloc, or Sanlieu. By order of the governor he was flogged, beaten to death with- clubs, and thrown into the fire. This happened under Marcus Aurelius. His festival is kept on Sept. 24. See Baillet, Sept. 24.
