Caeti (Caoide, Coeddi, Caideus, Caidocus, or Ceti)
Caeti (Caoide, Coeddi, Caideus, Caidocus, Or Ceti)
is celebrated as an Irish saint Oct. 24. The Mart. Doneg. gives two entries of saints under these names at Oct. 24 and 25. The table of the Martyrology identifies these names as belonging to one person, but it seems more probable that one name under these different Celtic and Latin forms belongs to at least two individuals. SEE CAIDOCUS.
1. CAETI (Caette, or Coeddi), a bishop at Iona (whom .Colgan calls Caideus and Caidinus), died, according to the Four Masters, in 710. Other authorities give 711 and 712 (the latter being probably the true date). He is commemorated Oct. 24.
2. CAOIDE (Caideus, or Caidocus) was abbot of Domnach-Caoide, at the Dannaid foot in Tir-Eoghain that is, "the Church of Caoide," now Donaghedy,. in the north of Tyrone. He is commemorated Oct. 25.
