Plonius (Pluen, Pleunis), an Anabaptist martyr, was drowned in the Rhine on 29 November 1561, at Cologne, Germany, with Johann von Orval. The ac­count in van Braght's Martyrs' Mirror is brief and incorrect. He only mentions the year of execution and not the date; he reports that two other martyrs, Orvel and Jan, were executed with him. This must be a mistake; Orvel and Jan were the same person, namely, Johann von Orvall. Plonius was a tailor, a native of Emmerich, Germany.
