He was a young Roman of a noble family. The day of his wedding, leaving his wife intact, he went on a pilgrimage through the East, where he had a vision of the Mother of God.

He returned to Rome, where he lived unknown for seventeen years under a staircase in his paternal house, where he died a holy death in the early fifth century.

The relic of his head is venerated in the Monastery of Santa Laura del Peloponnese.
