Psathyrians or Psatyrians

Psathyrians Or Psatyrians a sect of Arians, who were followers of Theoctistus, a zealous pastry-cook (ψαθυροπώλης) of Constantinople, who maintained the heresy of Arius in the form that the first person in the Trinity existed before the Son had a being; thus denying the eternal generation of Christ. Brought to trial in the Council of Antioch, A.D. 360, they maintained that the Son was not like the Father as to will; that he was taken from nothing, or made of nothing; and that in God generation was not to be distinguished from creation. They were also called Douleians and Cyrtiani. See Theodorus, Hoer. Fab. vol. 4.
