St. Timon the Deacon
Tradition says that Timon, one of the seven chosen to minister to the poor
of the Christian community at Jerusalem, was also an apostle of the 70.
He is assumed to have been a Hellenized Jew and is thought to have
preached at Berrhoea. The Roman martyrology says he become bishop of
Corinth, where he was crucified by Jews and pagans. Other traditions
report that he was bishop of Bostra, an unidentified place, and was
martyred by fire.
