Is, in persecutione Juliani Apostatae, a Quadratiano Augustali comprehensus, et, cum sacrificare idolis renuisset, gladio percussus, martyrium consummavit.

Rotomagi sancti Victricii Episcopi, qui adhuc miles, sub eodem Juliano, abjiciens pro Christo cingulum, a Tribuno multis tormentis afficitur, et capitis damnatur; sed, carnifice, qui ad eum caedendum missus fuerat, caecitate percusso, ipse, vinculis solutis, liber evasit. Postea, Episcopus factus, indomitas Morinorum et Nerviorum gentes divini praedicatione verbi ad Christi fidem perduxit, et demum Confessor in pace quievit. At Rouen, the holy bishop St. Victricius. Whilst he was yet a soldier under Julian, he threw away his military belt for Christ, and after being subjected by the tribune to many torments, was condemned to capital punishment.
