Publias, bishop of Athene and a disciple of the apostles, received the crown of martyrdom on account of the faith of Christ, and was succeeded by Quadratus, whom we have mentioned before, who with great industry gathered the church of Christ together again, which had been dispersed in great alarm. A.D. 130. Basilidee, the heresiarch, greatly polluted the church of Christ by his treachery ; it was from him that the Basilidians, who adhered to his sect, derived their name.
