Archelaus bishop of Carrha in Mesopotamia, A.D. 278, held a public dispute with a heretic, Manes, an account of which he published in Syriac, soon translated into Greek and Latin (Socrates, Hist. Eccl. 1, 22; Jerome, De Vir. Illustr. 72). The Lat. version has been printed by Zaccagnius (Collect. Mon.. Vet. Rome, 1698) and Fabricius (in his ed. of Hippolytus).
