(probably late 4th cent.),
ascetical writer. He has long been known as the author of three short extracts in the Florilegium Edessenum, but in modern times J. Lebon has attributed to him nine other works and identified him with the Marcian who lived in the desert of Chalcis and died c.385. Others have attributed some or all these works to Marcian of Bethlehem who died in 492.
