Marcus of Calabria
Little is known of his life career or Episcopal work, and he would have remained largely unknown to history save for the fact that he was one of only five delegates from the catholic Western Roman Empire to attend the first Council of Nicene.
He is listed as delegate 208 in the Greek version of the Patrum Nicaenorum Nomina as being Bishop of Calabria in Southern Italy, however, he is listed as a bishop from Dacia in the Syriac and the Greek text "Nicene Catalogue of Fathers and Cities", by Theodorus Lector. Both of which record the proceedings of the First Council of Nicaea.
