Headword: Antônios
Adler number: alpha,2763
Translated headword: Antonios, Antonius
Vetting Status: high
Of Alexandria, who being rather deficient in words was someone not altogether precise; but he became most dedicated to the truth and was very enthusiastic in soul for the service of god, both in a public and in a more esoteric capacity; as a result he made Gaza far more holy than it was previously. And he went into civil lawsuits and he went to trial over his sister and championed her more ardently than was within measure and defended her very forcefully; neither did he stint on time spent until nothing was lacking, nor did he have any concern for a better reputation. For he was spoken of badly by the men of that time, not as being unjust, but as being litigious. For he even went up to Byzantium for a lawsuit and he was thought to be someone exceedingly contentious. Although he prevailed over his opponents, yet he surrendered her [sc. his sister] to another man, and he himself spent the rest of his life in rest and away from politics, some in philosophy, but mostly he lived his life in the holy places. He was simple in his habit and ready for public services, especially ones concerning religion. So I myself, personally, concede to this man simply the greatest grace, for which I pray the gods repay him as someone worthy to live with [them] in the islands of the blest.[1]
Also [sc. attested is the phrase] *)antwni/eios kli/nh ["Antonian couch"], [meaning] that of Antonios.[2]
