Bishop of Pavia, Italy, called "the Peacemaker." He became the bishop of his native city in 467, having to rebuild Pavia after Odoacer, King of Italy, destroyed it. Epiphanius served as a mediator in disputes and counseled EmperorAnthemius, the Visigoth King Euric, and others. In 497, he went to Burgundy, France, to ransom captives held by Gondebald. Contracting a fever there, Epiphanius died upon his return to Pavia .
