Annemondus (otherwise spelled Aunenmondtai Chanemundus, Enemundus, and commonly St. Chaumond), saint and martyr, was bishop of Lyons, and was also called Dalfinus. He succeeded Viventius in the see of Lyons about the middle of the 7th century. Mild, humble, prudent, just, and full of zeal and vigilance, he discharged all the duties of a faithful bishop. About 660, under the ministry of Bathilda, widow of Clovis II, he was accused of a state crime, and upon the strength of a royal order for him to attend court to justify himself, he was inveigled into a journey thither and murdered on the road, in the territory of Chalons-sur-Saone. His body was transported to Lyons, and his festival is kept Sept. 28.
