"A good politician, but an ill author." He obtains special mention only as the enemy of Chrysostom, and uncle and trainer of Cyril. Made bishop of Alexandria, A. D. 385, he abolished the last traces of idolatry in that city by pulling down the remaining temples and idols. His principal writings were a treatise against Origen, a book against the Anthropomorphites, and a treatise for the monks of Scitha against Chrysostom, all of which are lost. We have of his works only a few letters and fragments.
