St. Spyridon of Tremithius
A native of Cyprus, St. Spyridon was a sheep farmer who had been tortured during the persecutions of Diocletian. Famed for this knowledge of the Bible, Spyridon was married and had children at the time of his elevation to the see of Tremithius. Legends say that he attended the Council of Nicaea (321), but his name is not on the official list of attending bishops. He attended the Council of Sardica (c. 343), at which Constantius requested the condemnation of Athanasius of Alexandria. Spyridon died c. 348.
