On the same day, the holy martyrs Philemon and Domninus. Alexandríæ beáti Serapiónis, Anachorétæ et Epíscopi Thmúeos, magnárum virtútum viri; qui, Arianórum furóre in exsílium actus, Conféssor migrávit ad Dóminum. At Alexandria, blessed Serapion, anchoret and bishop of Thmuis, a man of great virtue, who was driven into exile by the enraged Arians, where he departed to heaven. In território Lugdunénsi sancti Lupicíni Abbátis, cujus vita ob sanctitátis et miraculórum glóriam fuit illústris.
