John, our presbyter, returned from Marseille with the merchandise of his commerce, and fell down to pray at the tomb of the same saint [i.e. Nicetius]. Getting up, he saw the broken chains and shuttered fetters which had casped the necks or calves of criminals, and he was full of admiration. Even the moment of his contemplation was marked by miracles. Indeed, when he returned to us he affirmed by an oath that three blind people had recovered their sight in his presence, and returned home cured.
