There is only a slight chance that Agapitus was a presbyter. Liberatus writes that he was an archdeacon when he succeeded to the Roman episcopal see (Breviarium, 21). However, the expression 'clericus a sanctos Iohannem et Paulum' used in the Liber Pontificalis may suggest that he was a presbyter of that titular church.
