Pope Caius (Gaius) dies in Rome. Very little is known about Caius or his pontificate, except that he made the decision that before anyone can be named a bishop they must first serve as porter, lector, exorcist, acolyte, subdeacon, deacon, and priest.

This prevents people from being made bishop suddenly and without any background or qualifications for the job. According to Christian traditions, Pope Caius was part of a noble family and related to Emperor Diocletian.
