Pachomius (2)

Pachomius (2), distinguished as "THE YOUNGER." Among the histories published by Herbert Rosweyd (Vitce Patrum [Antw. 1615, fol.], p. 233) is one of a certain Posthumius of Memphis, father (i.e. abbot) of five thousand monks. The MSS. have Pachomius instead of Posthumius. The truth of the whole history is, however, strongly suspected by the editors of the Acta Sanctorum, who have nevertheless printed it in the introduction to the account of Pachomius of Tabenna. See Smith, Dict. of Greek and Roman Biog. and Mythol. s.v.
