The marvelous man. [The one] concerning whom the monks in Egypt, when they learned that he stood on a pillar, finding fault with the stranger (for he was the first to think of this [sc. way of life]) sent a [sc. notice of] excommunication to him. Then when they became acquainted with the man's way of life and his humility, they received him again into communion. And Marcian the emperor[1] visited him secretly, dressed as a common man.
Greek Original:
Συμεών, ὁ θαυμαστός. περὶ οὗ οἱ ἐν Αἰγύπτῳ μοναχοὶ μαθόντες ὅτι ἐπὶ κίονος ἵσταται, μεμψάμενοι τῷ ξένῳ [πρῶτος γὰρ αὐτὸς τοῦτο ἐπενόησεν] ἀκοινωνησίαν αὐτῷ ἔπεμψαν. εἶτα ἐγνωκότες τὸν βίον τοῦ ἀνδρὸς καὶ τὸ ἄτυφον πάλιν αὐτῷ ἐκοινώνησαν. ὁ δὲ Μαρκιανὸς ὁ βασιλεὺς ἐν σχήματι ἰδιώτου πρὸς αὐτὸν ἀφανῶς παρεγένετο.
