[Bishop][1] of Myra[2] in Lycia, an ardent Christian and zealous priest, who spoke very freely with God. This man did not [merely] write to the emperor Constantine[3] but appeared to him in dreams, and saved three soldiers condemned to death as a result of some slanderer, when he had received their request for help in prayers. He also snatched some other soldiers from death in a similar manner; and he does not cease up to the present day to rescue those who invoke his intercession from every kind of necessity.
