Entychites a sect of the followers of Simon, who, according to Clemens Alex. (Stromatavii, 17; page 900), derived this name from their promiscuous (ἐντυγχάνω,) sexual intercourse at the night meetings. Others write the name Eutychites or Euchites. Envy was always reckoned an odious sin, and one of the first magnitude; but there are no distinct penalties attached to it, inasmuch as, before it could bring a man under public discipline, it required to be displayed in some outward and vicious action, which received its appropriate punishment.
