A Missing Martyr

in the Church History by Eusebius.  Martyr is mentioned 355 times.   Carpus and Papylus, and Agathonice are mentioned as martyrs in the city of Pergamus.  Antipas is not mentioned.  Eusebius mentions six of the seven churches of the Apocalypse but never associates any of them with the Apocalypse.  We have the same problem with Victorinus, who mentions the spirits but not the churches.  So what were Eusebius and Victorinus looking at?

Watch for more pieces that fit.  Blessed is the one who looks.
