One of Christ’s apostles.

The Vulgate Estoire del Saint Graal tells us that he baptized Joseph of Arimathea and that Peter, one of Joseph’s followers, founded a church in Orkney in honor of Phillip.

In an English version of Joseph’s life, Phillip travels with Joseph from Israel to France, and bids him to go to Britain with the Grail.
