Martyr of Phoenicia, now Lebanon. He was born in Lycia, circa 286, and studied at Berytus, modern Beirut. From there he went to Caesarea, with Eusebius. When an imperial order demanded public sacrifice to the gods of Rome, Appian protested to the local governor. He was arrested and thrown into the sea with weights on his feet. Tradition states that an earthquake followed his execution, bringing the body back on shore. In some lists he is called Apphian.
