According to the Coptic Church, Saint Mark was born in Cyrene, a city in the Pentapolis of North Africa (now Libya). When Mark returned to Alexandria (today's Egypt), the Pagans of that beautiful city (once home to the ruling incestuous Ptolemies, including Cleopatra and her gold gilt palace) greatly resented his efforts to turn the Alexandrians away from the worship of their traditional gods. So in AD 68, they placed a rope around his neck, and dragged him through the streets until he was dead.
St. Mark's Feast Day is April 25, and his symbol is the Winged Lion. And this is the Apocalypse.
