A History Of The Church In Nine Books by Sozomen

DURING this period of cessation from persecution, many excellent Christians, and many who had survived the recent troubles and had witnessed a good confession, adorned the churches; among these were Hosius, bishop of Cordova, Amphion, bishop of Epiphania in Cilicia, Maximus, who succeeded Macarius in the bishopric of Jerusalem, and Paphnutius, an Egyptian. It is said that by this latter God wrought many miracles, enabling him to expel demons and to heal divers kinds of sickness. This Paphnutius and Maximus, whom we just mentioned, were among the number of confessors whom Maximinus condemned to the mines, after having deprived them of the right eye, and the use of the left leg.
