Headword: Ἰάκωβος
Adler number: iota,12
Translated headword: Iacobos, Jacob
Vetting Status: high
Son of Hesychius the physician; the man surnamed Psychristus ["Chilly"], from the exarchy of Damascus. His father went to Rhodes, then to Drepanon, the one in Argos [Myth, Place];[1] and when he came there he married the woman who bore Jacob to him. Then he left his wife and the child and spent 19 years abroad in Alexandria and Italy and seemed to be no longer living. Therefore Jacob's mother married a second husband. When she had two [male] children and a daughter, the man who married her passed away. But Hesychius went up to Constantinople; and when Jacob learned this, he came to him. And then he began his education and served as a physician at Constantinople during the reign of the emperor Leo.[2]
Greek Original:
Ἰάκωβος, Ἡσυχίου υἱὸς ἰατροῦ, ὁ ἐπικληθεὶς Ψύχριστος, ἐκ τοῦ ἐξάρχου Δαμασκηνοῦ. εἰς Ῥόδον δὲ γενομένου τοῦ πατρός, εἶτα εἰς Δρέπανον τὸ ἐν Ἄργει, ἐλθόντος κἀκεῖ γήμαντος τὴν ἐξ αὐτοῦ τεκοῦσαν τὸν Ἰάκωβον, καταλιπόντος δὲ τήν τε γαμετὴν καὶ τὸν παῖδα καὶ ἐκδημήσαντος ἐπὶ ἔτη ιθ# εἴς τε Ἀλεξάνδρειαν καὶ Ἰταλίαν καὶ οὐδὲ περιεῖναι δοκοῦντος: ὅθεν γαμεῖται μὲν ἡ Ἰακώβου μήτηρ δευτέρῳ ἀνδρί. καὶ παίδων αὐτῇ γενομένων δύο καὶ θηλείας, τελευτᾷ τὸν βίον ὁ γαμήσας αὐτήν. ἐπάνεισι δὲ Ἡσύχιος ἐν Κωνσταντινουπόλει: ὅπερ γνοὺς Ἰάκωβος ἦλθε πρὸς αὐτόν: καὶ τότε παιδείας ἤρξατο καὶ ἰάτρευσεν ἐν Κωνσταντινουπόλει ἐπὶ Λέοντος βασιλέως.

[1] The qualifier is intended to distinguish this Drepanon from several others throughout the Mediterranean. But "Argos [Myth, Place]" seems to be an error; Cape Drepanon (present-day Drepano) was in Achaia, at the northernmost point of the Peloponnese.
[2] Leo I, ruled 457-74 AD: see lambda 267.
