Nilammon was an Egyptian hermit. It is believed that he was appointed Bishop, which he refused. He then locked himself in his cell. Nilammon would die praying with scores of people, pleading for him to reconsider his decision, standing outside his cell[1].

Nilammon is one of the 140 Colonnade saints which adorn St. Peter's Square.
