Acolyte Annius Innocentius, who lived 26 years. Acting on ecclesiastical orders, he often laboured by journeys. He was sent to Greece, he was often in Campania, Calabria and Apulia, and finally he was sent to Sardinia, where he left this world. His body was brought from there here. He slept in peace on the 8th day before the Kalends of September. Annius Vincentius, his brother, presbyter, who worked with him, made this.
