Joannes or Joannes Codonatus
10. ANTIOCHENUS (2). On the deposition of Petrus Gnapheus or Fullo (the Fuller) from the patriarchate of Antioch, A. D. 477, the vacant see was occupied by Joannes, surnamed Codonatus (Κωδωνάτος
), who had been previously bishop of Apameia : but after holding the patriarchate three months, he was deposed by a synod of Eastern bishops, and succeeded by Stephen. Theophanes incorrectly places the appointment of Joannes after Stephen's death. Both Joannes and his predecessor Petrus had been, at the instigation of Acacius of Constantinople, excommunicated by the pope; yet, after the deposition of Joannes, the same Acacius procured his elevation to the bishopric of Tyre. Theophanes incorrectly ascribes this last appointment to Calendion of Antioch. (Theophanes, Chronog.
