Patron Saint of Archers, Soldiers, Arms Dealers and Weapons Manufacturers, Ironmongers and Blacksmiths
Martyr from MilanAlthough used for target practice, a woman called Irene found him still alive and took him home for extensive arrow plucking and nursing.
Then what did the silly twerp do? When he heard Emperor Diocletian, the cause of his problems, passing by, he waved out of the window at him. "You never got me! N'yer n'yer n'yer!"
No near misses or faulty shafting this time — they clubbed him to death.
