), bishop of Chalcedon, an ecclesiastical writer of uncertain date.
He wrote a work against the Manichaeans, in twenty books, Καρὰ Μανιχαίων ἐν βιβλίοιρ κ́
. Photius, from whom alone we learn any thing of the work and its author, describes it as written in a concise and elevated, yet perspicuous, style.
It was addressed to one Achillius (Ἀχιλλιορ
), at whose request it was written; and was designed to refute the so-called Gospel (εν̓αγγέλιον
) of the Manichaeans, and the Γιγάντειορ Βιβλυρ
, and the Θησαυροί
, works of note among the members of that sect. (Phot. Bibl.
