- Anastasius II the Younger
Bishop of Antioch, Syria in 599. Fought simony in his diocese with the support of Pope Gregory the Great. Murdered by a mob during an uprising of Syrian Jews against Emperor Phocas who was trying to force conversions; because he died in anti-Church violence, he is considered a martyr.
