Cynegius was praefect of the Prastorians at Rome, A.D. 384-390. In A.D. 384 the emperor Theodosius sent him a rescript at the request of Marcellinus and Faustinus, two presbyters of the Luciferian faction, enjoining that the Luciferians should have the same religious liberty as the Catholics, and highly praising some of their representatives. The seventh and eighth letters of Gregory of Nyssa are addressed to this Cynegius, in behalf of Synesius and Alexander, two accused persons.
