'''Flavian II of Antioch''' was the Patriarch of Antioch from 498 (perhaps 505) to 513. He attempted to maintain a middle course among the decrees of the [[Fourth Ecumenical Council ]] at [[Chalcedon ]] without satisfying either the Chalcedonian and non-Chalcedonian parties.
Flavian was appointed Patriarch of Antioch as the successor to Patr. Palladius by emperor [[Flavius Anastasius|Anastasius]], a [[Monophysitism|Monophysite]], after he agreed to accept the controversial [[Henoticon]] of emperor [[Zeno (emperor)|Zeno]] that was an attempt to cure the split between the Chalcedonian and non-Chalcedonian parties. However, after becoming [[patriarch]], Flavian did not join in on the repudiation of the Council of Chalcedon.
