Alypius (3)

Alypius a learned architect, was commanded by the emperor Julian to rebuild the Temple of Jerusalem, with the avowed object of falsifying the prophecies of our Saviour with regard to that structure. It is said that while the workmen were excavating for the foundation, balls of fire issued from the earth and destroyed them. Alypius died about A.D. 363.
