Bishop of Antioch; from Arabissos in Lesser Armenia.[1] During the reign of Maximian[2] his father Kaisarios put on a martyr's crown, despite having previously given the impression of being a slave to pleasures. But he wished to wash away his first stains through the blood of martyrdom. For having driven large nails, six in number, through each of his feet they handed him over to the fire. And once, after embracing the fire, he had instantly died, his relatives took the corpse, still half-burnt and intact, and buried it in a certain field called Soubil.

This seems to be the Arian Eudoxius of Antioch, on whom see web address 1. Here, oddly, the Suda reports more about his father than about him, but Photius has more information (also from Philostorgius) about Eudoxius himself.
