Perdiccas (Περδίκκας) flourished as a prothonotary at Ephesus in the 14th century (1347), and is the author of a poem which was inserted in a compilation of Allatius, entitled Συμμικτά (published at Amsterdam in 1653). The subject is the miraculous events connected with Christ's history, principally those of which Jerusalem was the theater. But besides Jerusalem, he visits Bethany, Bethpage, and Bethlehem. In this poem (which consists of 260 verses of that kind termed politici) he writes as if from personal inspection, but, if this were really the case, he is wanting in clearness and distinctness of delineation. While some of the details are curious, his geography is singularly inaccurate. Thus he places Galilee on the northern skirts of the Mount of Olives. If we may trust a conjecture hazarded by Fabricius, he attended a synod held at Constantinople A.D. 1347, at which were present two of the same name, Theodorus and Georgius Perdiccas (Allatius, l.c.; Fabricius, Biblioth. Graeca, 4:663; 8:99).
