An Ecclesiastical History To The 20th Year Of The Reign Of Constantine by Eusebius

MENTION is also made in these times of the pious confidence of Astyrius, a man who was a Roman of senatorial rank, in great favour with the emperors, and well known to all for his noble birth and his wealth. As he was present at the death of the above-mentioned martyr, taking up the corpse, he bore him on his shoulder in a splendid and costly dress, and covering it in a magnificent manner, committed it to a decent burial. Many other facts are stated of the man by his friends, who have lived to the present times.
