St. Urban, pope (222-230). He had been preceded by Callixtus I and was followed by Pontianus. He is mentioned by Eusebius in his history and is named in an inscription in the Coemetarium Callisti, but of his life nothing is known. The Catholic Church's Breviary (25 May) speaks of his numerous converts, among whom were Valerianus, husband of St Cecelia, and his brother Tiburtius, and states that he suffered martyrdom and was buried in the Coemetarium Praetextati.
