Apringius bishop of Chalcis, in Syria Prima, was a leading member of the Eastern party at the Council of Ephesus, A.D. 431, who supported John of Antioch in the deposition of Cyril, etc., and was deputed as one of the commissioners to the emperor at Constantinople as; proxy for the metropolitan Alexander of Apamea. He shared in the ultimate reconciliation between Cyril and the East (Labbe, Concil. iii, 1127, 1183; Baluze, Coll. Nov. Concil. p. 497, 507, 577, 719, 720).
