Saint Cassian of Autun (French: Cassien) (died ca. 350 AD) was a 4th-century bishop of Autun. He may have been an Egyptian by birth.[1] He traveled to Autun and was a follower of Saint Reticius, bishop of Autun.[1]

Cassian succeeded Reticius as bishop, serving for about twenty years, and was well liked by the people of his see.[1] Gregory of Tours attributes miracles to Cassian.[1]
