...iled, the miracles and prophecies didn't happen, and they and their followers were killed by the Roman soldiers. Flavius Josephus, "Wars of the Jews" Book 2 chapter 13 Another body of wicked men also sprung up, cleaner in their hands, but more wicked in their intentions, who destroyed the peace of the city no less than did these murderers [the Sicarii].

He was imprisoned during the persecution of Diocletian, attended the Council of Nicaea, and died at Myra, where he was buried in the cathedral.
