Timotheus, Bishop of Pachoras
Miaphysite Nubian hierarch,
well known today for the two scrolls (letters of
appointment from the Coptic pope) and other artifacts found
in his tomb at Primis.
He was apparently titular bishop of
Pachoras as well, but the cathedral
there had been abandoned for a century or more.
Under construction --- far from complete! Read with caution.
