Acacius a Presbyter of Beroea

Acacius A Presbyter Of Beroea who visited St. Basil about A.D. 375, taking with him a favorable report of the monastic life at Beroea. Basil wrote to him and others, condoning with them on the loss of their monastery, which had been burned by the heretics (Epist. 256). This is doubtless the same Acacius who, in conjunction with Paulus, wrote to Epiphanius urging him to compose a work on heresies; for the two are described as presbyters and archimandrites of monasteries in the regions of Chalcis and Bereea, in Coele-Syria.
