Sidenote 879: "This is a peculiar statement. Members of the house of David would hardly have ventured to accuse Symeon on the ground that he belonged to that house. The statement is, however, quite indefinite. We are not told what happened to these accusers, nor indeed that they really were of David’s line, although the ὡσ€ν with which Eusebius introduces the charge does not imply any doubt in his own mind, as Lightfoot quite rightly remarks. It is possible that some who were of the line of David may have accused Symeon, not of being a member of that family, but only of being a Christian, and that the report of the occurrence may have become afterward confused."''</ref> at the age of 120, location disputed[[April 27]]; ''c,'' [[Ignatius of Antioch|Ignatius]], 3rd Bp. of Antioch, martyred in Rome (or ''c,'' 115); [[Eudokia of Heliopolis]], beheaded [[March 1december 20]].
