Basil of Ancyra, was a Christian priest in Ancyra, Galatia during the fourth century. Very meager information about his life is preserved in a metaphrastic work: “Life and Deeds of the Martyred Priest Basil.” He fought against the pagans and the Arians. Basil defended Bishop Marcellus against the prelate being deposed by the Arians. Twice Marcellus was deposed, and succeeded by Basil.

Basil was caught up in the persecution of Julian the Apostate. He was arrested, tortured, and executed on June 29, 362 AD.

He is commemorated as a martyr on March 22 in the west, and January 1 by the Eastern Orthodox Church.January 1
