Telemachus was a Christian martyr who according to Church historian Theodoret tried to stop a gladiatorial fight in the Roman Coliseum and was stoned to death by the crowd. The Christian Emperor Honorius, however, was impressed by his martyrdom and it spurred him to issue a historic ban on gladiatorial fights. The last known gladiatorial fight in Rome was on 1 January 404 AD, so this is usually given as the date of Telemachus' martyrdom.
