Accaophori A sect of heretics which used water instead of wine for the eucharist had this name given to it by Timotheus Presbyter, who traces the sect's origin to the followers of Tatian, or the Encratites (q.v.). But he adds that the Accaophori were called Hydroparastatoe (q.v.), and hence the name is supposed to be merely a misreading for Saccophori (q.v.).
