22. ELEUSIUS. A life of Theodore of Siceon or Syeium, for a time bishop of Anastasiopolis, in Gaiatia, in which country Siceon was probably situated, is professedly written by Georgius Eleusius, a disciple of the saint, and an ey e-witness of much that he relates.
According to his own account, his parents were of Adigermarus or Adigermarum, a place otherwise unknown, but perhaps in Galatia, and had been childless for many years after marriage, and his birth was the result of the prayers of Theodore, to whose care he was assigned at a very tender age for education, and with whom he continued twelve years (Georg.
