Mercurius, Bishop of Pachoras
Successor of Marianus in the
see of Faras
in Nubia; both were disciples
of Bishop John III and
dyophysites. After his repose, the see was apparently
vacant for two years; then the miaphysite
Peter II became bishop.
Under construction --- far from complete! Read with caution.
