4. Of ALEXANDRIA (1, 2).
There were two patriarchs of Alexandria of the name of Theodore : one surnamed Scribo (Σκρίβων
), a Melchite, or of the orthodox Greek Church, who, after a patriarchate of two years, perished apparently in the troubles occasioned by the revolt of Egypt and Africa against the usurper Phocas, A. D. 609; the other, a Jacobite, who was patriarch from A. D. 727 to 738. (Le Quien, Oriens Christianus,
vol. ii. col. 445, 457.)
