1. An Egyptian monk, who lived at the beginning of the 5th century after Christ, and wrote a chronography, in which, according to Syncellus, he generally followed Eusebius, but sometimes corrected errors made by that writer.
It is, however, very doubtful whether Anianus, on the whole, surpassed Eusebius in accuracy. Syncellus frequently finds fault with him. (Syncell. Chronogr.
pp. 7, 6, 17, 34-36.)
