Syrian Orthodox Patr. of Antioch. At Constantinople he secured the support of the Emp. Anastasius (491–518) for the persecuted Monophysite monks, and in 512 he was made Patr. of Antioch in place of the deposed Flavian II. On Justin I's accession (518) he was deposed. He was the leading theologian of the moderate Monophysites. His writings survive mainly in Syriac translation.
