(d. 488),

Patr. of Antioch. According to an uncertain tradition, he was a monk in the house of the Acoemetae at Constantinople, where he practised as a fuller. Expelled because of his Monophysite leanings, he accompanied the Emp. Zeno to Antioch. Here he joined the Apollinarians and opposed the bishop; in the bishop's absence in 470 he had himself made bishop, with Zeno's support. Gennadius, Patr. of Constantinople, obtained a decree of exile against him, but in 482 Peter assented to Zeno's ‘Henoticon’ and regained his see. He is remembered for his addition to the Trisagion of the clause ‘who was crucified for us’.
