A physician of this name, who was a Christian, and also in deacon's orders, appears to have consulted Isidorus Pelusiotes, in the fifth century after Christ, on the reason why incorporeal beings are less subject to injury and corruption than corporeal; to which question he received an answer in a letter, which is still extant. (Isid. Pelus. Epist.
5.191, ed. Paris, 1638.)
