Saint Aristarchus is mentioned in the Epistle to the Colossians (4:10),
and also in the Epistle to Philemon (v. 24). By his ascetical manner of
life, this Saint proved to be another Saint John the Baptist. He became
Bishop of Apamea in Syria, and brought many to the Faith of Christ.
Saints Pudens and Trophimus are mentioned in II Timothy 4:20-21. Also,
Acts 21:29 mentions that Trophimus was from Ephesus. According to
sources that Saint Dorotheus of Tyre (celebrated on June 5) found
written in Latin in Rome, these Apostles were beheaded in Rome during
the reign of Nero (54-68).
