    • (Greek) «Τῇ αὕτῃ ἥμερᾳ τῆς ἁγίας μάρτυρος Βάσσης τῆς Τυρίας». (It is unclear if "Tyria" refers to either "Tyre, Lebanon", or to "Tyros, Greece").
  5. ^ "In Cyprus, St. Isacius, bishop and martyr. In the same place, St. Meletius, bishop and confessor."[6] Venerable Meletius is also listed on September 20.

For the faith of Christ he was loaded with fetters scourged, tortured, burned with torches, torn with iron hooks, exposed to the beasts and cast into the flames, but having overcome all these torments, he was finally beheaded, and so attained the glory of eternal life. His body was afterwards carried into the city by the blessed pope Damasus, on the 26th of November, on which day his feast is to be celebrated by order of the same Pontiff."[6]
  8. ^ Born either in Wales or else in Cornwall, preached Christ with St Teilo.
