), 1. Patriarch of ALEXANDRIA. a man of luxurious habits and a most scandalous course of life, lived about A. D. 995.
He wrote four works, the titles of which, as translated from the Arabic, are, 1. Declarator ; 2. Rara Commentatorum, et Depravationes Hereticorum ; 3. Detectio Arcanorum; 4. Autobiographia.
The whole of these works is lost, and it does not appear whether the author wrote in Arabic or in Greek.
A sermon, De Mandatis Domini nostri Jesu Christi,
ed. Greek and Latin by P. Possinus in his Ascetica,
is ascribed to one S. Pilotheus, perhaps the aforesaid. (Cave, >Hist. Lit.
ad an. 995.)
