 Science Fair Projects - Philoxenus of Mabbog
Philoxenus (Syriac, Aksenaya) of Mabbog (died 523), was one of the best of Syriac prose writers, and a vehement champion of the Non-Chalcedonian doctrine in the end of the 5th and beginning of the 6th centuries.
Philoxenus soon attracted notice by his strenuous advocacy of Non-Chalcedonian doctrine, and on the expulsion of Calandio (the orthodox patriarch of Antioch) in 485 was ordained bishop of Mabbog by his Non-Chalcedonian successor Peter the Fuller (Barhebraeus, Chron.
Philoxenus was sent to Philippopolis in Thrace, and afterwards to Gangra in Paphlagonia, where he met his death by foul play in 523.

 A.A.Vaschalde, Three Letters of Philoxenus (1902). pp. ....  Part 2. Introduction
An approximate date may perhaps be found in the passage in which Philoxenus advises the monks not to confine themselves to the duties of their ascetic calling, but to go out and fight for the truth openly: a I exhort you also to be open defenders and preachers of the truth.
In the epilogue, Philoxenus advises the monks not to be satisfied with the duties of contemplative life, but to fight courageously for the faith that is in them: he asks for their prayers, 87 and he anathematizes Nestorius and Eutyches and all those who agree with them.
Philoxenus writes to confirm the glad tidings already proclaimed in the churches (probably the promulgation of the Henoticon and the overthrow of the rebels).

 Philoxenus, Ascetic Discourses (1894) pp.xviii-xxxi. The Life of Philoxenus
Soon after Philoxenus had become Bishop of Mabbôgh some Persian bishops visited his city, and in the new bishop they are said to have recognized a slave who had fled from his master, and a man who had never been baptized; this statement is made both by Theodore the Reader
Whether Philoxenus was actually a slave, or only the son of a family who paid tribute to the Persian nobility or landed proprietors, is a matter of no consequence, but it can be proved from his own writings that he was baptized, and that he regarded baptism as a thing of no small importance.
With this, however, Philoxenus was still dissatisfied, and he further insisted that Flavian should anathematize both the Council of Chalcedon and those who maintained two natures in our Lord's Person; but this Flavian declined to do, and was, in consequence, denounced afresh to the Emperor as a Nestorian.

Philoxenus seems to have been quite an important king who might briefly have ruled both the "Eastern" and "Western" Indo-Greek kingdoms.
Philoxenus cannot be connected with any dynasty: he uses an obverse with a mounted king, previously used only by Antimachus II sixty years earlier.
Several later kings use this obverse as well, but their relationship to Philoxenus remains opaque.

The best one I know comes from Philoxenus of Cythera, a poet of the late 5th and early 4th centuries B.C. His birthdate, roughly 435 B.C., makes him a bit younger than Aristophanes and a bit older than Plato.
His generosity led to flattery on the part of these grateful critics, and removed from reality by it he bragged more of his poetry than of his military successes.
Next day his friends begged him to pardon Philoxenus, so he made it up to him and invited the same company to the drinking party.

Dionysius was highly flattered by their praise, but thought he would like to have it confirmed by the philosopher Philoxenus, the most learned man of Syracuse.
Now, Philoxenus was far too noble a man to tell a lie: and whenever he was [203] consulted by Dionysius, he always boldly told the truth, whether it was agreeable or not.
Here Philoxenus was a prisoner for many a day, although his only fault was having told the tyrant an unwelcome truth when asked to speak.

One philosopher, named Philoxenus, he sent to a dungeon for finding fault with his poetry, but he afterwards composed another piece, which he thought so superior, that he could not be content without sending for this adverse critic to hear it.
When he had finished reading it, he looked to Philoxenus for a compliment; but the philosopher only turned round to the guards, and said dryly, 'Carry me back to prison.' This time Dionysius had the sense to laugh, and forgive his honesty.
All these stories may not be true; but that they should have been current in the ancient world shows what was the character of the man of whom they were told, how stern and terrible was his anger, and how easily it was incurred.
