Not much is known of the life of Abp. Vetranion. He was of Cappadocian origin and came to the [[see]] of Tomis about the year 360.<ref>[ Vetranion - Dictionarul Teologilor Romani]</ref>
According to Sozomen (a historian of the fifth century) during the Roman campaign against the Goths in the region of Scythia during the years 376-382, the emperor Valens stopped at Tomis about the year 368 and urged the populace to convert to [[Arianism]] and reject the [[Nicene-Constantinopolitan Creed|Nicene Creed]]. Vetranion spoke out against this, and as a consequence he was exiled. However, the public outcry over the bishop’s exile, induced Valens to allow Abp. Vetranion to return.<ref>[ Santi Beati: San Bretannione]</ref>
