St. Anthimus

St. Anthimus was a parish priest in Rome. He converted people, including a Roman prefect. However, in retaliation for converting the prefect, Roman officials condemned St. Anthimus to death by drowning. When the saint was thrown into the water, it is said he was rescued by an angel. St. Anthimus continued to preach his faith and convert others until he was later recaptured and martyred for his faith around 303.
