ATHENODORUS 3rd c.. Bishop in Pontus, saint. Feast 18 October in the West, 7 November in the East. From Eusebius of Caesarea we know that Athenodorus was at Origen’s school in Caesarea for five years, with his older brother Theodore. Eusebius says that Theodore was the famous Gregory Thaumaturgus: this identification, for a long time undisputed, is now called into question. The fact remains nonetheless that, according to Eusebius, Athenodorus and Theodore were elected bishops of Pontus while still young HE VI,30; VII,14. With his brother, Athenodorus took part in the first synod against Paul of Samosata HE VII,28. DHGE 5, 43-44.
