Cyrus 2. An Egyptian bishop belonging to the seventh century. He was first bishop of Phasis A. D. 620, and afterwards patriarch of Alexandria, A. D. 630-640. It was owing to the favour of Heraclius, the emperor, that he was appointed over the latter place. Works Libellus Satisfactionis In 633 he attempted to make peace between the Theodosians or Severians and the Catholics, and for that purpose held a synod at Alexandria, in which he proposed a Libellus Satisfactionis in nine chapters. This treatise was to be subscribed by the Theodosians, and then they were to be admitted into the bosom of the church. But the seventh chapter favoured the Monotholite heresy, and led to much disputation. Ecthesis or formula of faith In 638, Heraclius published an Ecthesis or formula of faith drawn up by Sergius, in which he clearly stated that there was but one will in Christ. This was subscribed by Cyrus, a circumstance that served to confirm its truth in the eyes of many. Cyrus died A. D. 64

ANTIOCHENUS (6). The Excerpta ex Collectaneis Constantini Augusti Porphyrogeniti, peri\ a)reth=s kai\ kaki/as, De Virtute et Vitio, edited by Valesius, 4to. Paris, 1634, and frequently cited as the Excerpta Peiresciana, contain extracts from the *(Istori/a *Xronikh\ )apo\ *)Ada/m, Historia Chronographica ab Adamo, of a writer called Joannes of Antioch, of whom nothing is known beyond what may be gathered from the work. The last extract relates to the emperor Phocas, whose character is described in the past tense, o( au)to\s *Fwka=s u(ph=rxen ai(mopo/ths, " This same Phocas was bloodthirsty :" from which it appears that the work was written after the death of Phocas, A. D. 610, and before the time of Constantine Porphyrogenitus, in the tenth century. Cave places Joannes of Antioch in A. D. 620. He is not to be confounded with Joannes Malalas, from whom he is in the Excerpta expressly distinguished. (Fabric. Bibl. Gr. vol. iii. p. 44, vol. viii. p. 7; Cave, Hist. Litt. vol. i. p. 577.)
Justi'nus 2. Of JERUSALEM. In the Acta S. Anastasii Persae Martyris, of which two Latin versions are given in the Acta Sanctorum, Januar. vol. ii. p. 426, &c., mention is made of Justin, who was abbot of the monastery of St. Anastasius, about four miles distant from Jerusalem, about A. D. 620. Works Epistola ad Zenam et Serenum To this Justin some critics ascribe the Epistola ad Zenam et Serenum, which has been ascribed to Justin Martyr, and printed among his works. [No. 1.]

Moschus, Joannes or, as Photius calls him, JOANNES the son of MOSCHUS, surnamed *Eu)krata=s, or, what appears to be a corruption of that, Eviratus, was first a monk in the monastery of St. Theodosius at Jerusalem, afterwards lived among the anchorites in the desert on the banks of the Jordan, and subsequently filled the police of canonarchus in the convent of St. Saba. Bellandus gives A. D. 620 as the date of his death. Works Account of the lives of monks of his age After visiting a large number of the monasteries in Syria, Egypt, and the West, he applied himself to the composition of a work giving an account of the lives of the monks of that age, down to the time of Heraclius. It was addressed to Sophronius or Sophronas, his friend and pupil, who accompanied him on his travels, and became subsequently patriarch of Jerusalem. The work was entitled *Leimw/n or *Leimwna/rion, or *Ne/os para/deisos. In the editions it is divided into 219 chapters; Photius speaks of it as consistin
