About Firminus, bishop of Uzès

According to the Wikipedia page for the Ancient Diocese of Uzes:

St. Firminus (541-553) is locally venerated as a saint, with relic remains in the Uzès Cathedral (which had been dedicated to St. Theodoritus, a martyr and patron saint of the town). He is venerated as a patron saint against plague, with a feast day of October 11. He was the younger brother of his predecessor, Roricius d'Uzès (533-538).

This last statement is probably a misinterpretation of Acta Firmini (Settipani 2014 , p. 238-239).
