d.211. Bishop of Antioch. He remains almost unknown despite identification by Eusebius as eighth in the succession of bishops of Antioch. Eusebius quotes from a letter, conjointly signed by other bishops, sent by Serapion to Caricus and Pontius, persons unknown, as a supporting cover for a writing of Claudius Apollinarius,* bishop of Hierapolis, against the Montanists.* Otherwise Eusebius knows only a few other epistolary compositions, including one to the church of Rhossus in Cilicia against the Gospel of Peter, the Docetic imprint of which had led to Serapion's rejection of it.
