8. Bishop of Ancyra, in Galatia, an ecclesiastic of some distinction in the fifth century.
He was present at the council of Ephesus, in A. D. 431, and vehemently supported Cyril in his attacks upon Nestorius.
He was the author of numerous homilies and controversial works, the titles of which it is not worth while to insert here; they are fully given by Fabricius. Of these works some are published in the Acts of the Councils. some exist in MS., and others are wholly lost. Cave praises the ease and clearness of his style, and his controversial powers.
