Converted by Saint Paul in the Areopagus of Athens, it is a tradition that he evangelized Gaul, together with the priest Rustic and the deacon Eleuterio; that he was the first Bishop of Paris, and that he was beheaded due to his love for Christ at one hundred years of age. In some works of sacred art, he is depicted carrying his own head in his hands.
