The holy, glorious, all-laudable '''Apostle Caesar ''' is numbered among the [[Apostles#The_Seventy|Seventy Apostles]], and was [[bishop]] of Dyrrhachium, a district of the Peloponnese in Greece.
The Church remembers St. Caesar on [[March 30]] with Apostles [[Apostle Sosthenes| Sosthenes]], [[Apostle Apollo|Apollos]], [[Apostle Cephas|Cephas]], and [[Apostle Epaphroditus|Epaphroditus]] and on [[December 8]] with the same apostles and [[Apostle Onesiphorus| Onesiphorus]].
Apostles of the 70 were chosen and sent by the Lord [[Jesus Christ]] himself to preach. They were chosen some time after the selection of the Twelve Apostles ([[Gospel of Luke|Luke]] 10:1-24).  All seventy are commemorated by the Church on [[January 4]].
