I was informed this is Philipus, and with the help of the Wikipedia I can quote:

Philip the Evangelist appears several times in the Acts of the Apostles. He was one of the Seven Deacons chosen to care for the poor of the Christian community in Jerusalem (Acts 6). He preached and performed miracles in Samaria, converted Simon Magus, and met and baptised an Ethiopian eunuch in Gaza, traditionally marking the start of the Ethiopian Church (Acts 8). Later, he lived in Caesarea Maritima with his four daughters who had the gift of prophecy, where he was visited by Paul (Acts 21), though the account may refer to Philip the Apostle.
