Pope Celadion (Keladionus), 9th Pope of Alexandria & Patriarch of the See of St. Mark. The people and the Bishops in Alexandria elected Celadion to the Apostolic Throne in the year 152 AD during the reign Antoninus Pius. He was born in Alexandria, Egypt and was much loved by the people for he was righteous and wise.

When he took over the leadership, he tended the plants left to him by his predecessors. His days were peaceful, and nothing troubled the serenity of the Christians and Christianity. He remained steadfast in his work for fourteen years, six months and three days and departed in the reign of Aurelius and Lucius Verus, the two sons of the princes, on the 9th of Epip (16th of July), in the year 166 AD.[1] He was enshrouded, and buried with his fathers, the patriarchs.
