TIMOTHEOS II, AILUROS (457-460)

      He was elected Archbishop of Alexandria by some of the people, while the throne was already occupied by Proterius. Following the murder of Proterius (457) he remained as the only Archbishop until he was exiled by Emperor Leon I.

 Following the above-mentioned events, the division between the Orthodox –Copts reached its climax and they finally broke away from the Church forming their own Church under their own Patriarch.
