"The Saracens": At It Again

One of the lesser-known saints commemorated today is St Anthemius of Poitiers. All I can find about him is this note in Engelbert's "Lives of the Saints":

St Anthemius. Bishop of Poitiers, apostle of the Saintonge, accompanied Charlemagne to Spain and was killed by the Saracens (8th century).
