Linus - bishop of Rome

We just learned about Asyncritus - Bishop of Hyrcania, one of the seventy disciples.

A few more of the seventy were listed that we don't know much about:

Phlegon - bishop of Marathon
Hermes - bishop of Dalmatia
Patrobulus - bishop of Puteoli
Hermas - bishop of Philippi

One of the ones we know a little more about is Linus - bishop of Rome.

The apostle Peter was known as the first leader of the Christian church after Jesus' death.
Linus took over after Peter, and Linus was known as the first Pope.
