AMPHILOCHIUS of Iconium b. 340345, bishop 373374 398404. A rhetorician at Constantinople before becoming bishop. Little inclined to theological speculation, he pursued vigorous antiheretical activity, participating at the Council of Constantinople 381 and at some local synods against the Macedonians Iconium, 376 and Messalians Side, 383. It seems he enjoyed a certain fame after his death, testified to by the Eraniste and other old florilegia, which cite his christological homilies. Besides some fragments, however, we have only a few works directly from him: a treatise Contra haereticos against the Messalians, an Epistola synodalis, a profession of faith, some homilies IV-VI and VIIIIX in Datema’s edition and the Syriac edition published by Moss and a short, well-composed didactic poem, the Iambi ad Seleucum. A number of spurious works represent a late homage to his fame: homily I CPG 3231, author unknown; homilies IIIII by Leontius of Costantinople, a Coptic homily on Abraham’s sacrifice CPG 3240, a series of virtually unpublished ascetic homilies CPG 3250, and a cycle of the life and miracles of St. Basil CPG 3252-3254. Attribution to Amphilochius of homilies VII ps.-Chrysostom and In mesopentecosten is due to a transmission error. CPG 3230-3254; PG 39; DHGE 2, 1346-1348; DTC 1, 1121-1123; BS 1, 1182-1183; C.
