Telemachus

d.391. Eastern monk. Unknown but for his martyrdom (recorded by Theodoret), he rushed into the arena in 391 to separate the gladiators, only to be stoned to death by the exasperated spectators. As a result Emperor Honorius abolished gladiatorial combats soon after. Absence of this edict from the Theodosian Code has cast doubt on the historicity of the story, but Constantine's Edict already existed, and gladiatorial fights appear to end with Honorius; wild beast shows continued.
