Clarification on this Sts commemoration date

Umm, Im truly confused. There are two commemoration dates for this one saint and different sources state a different date ... Can someone assist on the authentic Orthodox churches position on this saint rather than pulling it off Internet sources (even these can be in error since it is people like you and me that put them together). Does someone have an old Synaxaris they can refer to? Vasiliki 02:00, October 30, 2008 (UTC)

The GOA of America ( also agrees with the GOA of Australia on March 22. Also, the OCA ( also agrees. Who ever did the Wikipedia article has his information incorrect. Wsk 12:55, October 30, 2008 (UTC)

There seems to be two saints called Basil of Ancyra. The January 1 Saint Basil was a layman. The March 22 Hieromartyr Basil of Ancyra is who I believe this article is about. See: Hieromartyr Basil of Ancyra and Martyr Basil of Ancyra - Andy 14:58, October 30, 2008 (UTC)
