Babylas

d.250. Bishop of Antioch. Noted for his courage, he would not admit Philip the Arabian* to public worship without penance. He was imprisoned and martyred in 250 during the Decian persecution; his martyr cult grew at Antioch. Caesar Gallus removed his corpse to a chapel near the Temple of Apollo in the suburb of Daphne. In 362 the Emperor Julian, frustrated by abortive attempts to acquire oracles from a spring at the temple, ordered the coffin of Babylas to be removed. Local Christians, antagonized by the order, buried the body again in a Christian cemetery six miles away. The temple was destroyed by fire within the year.
