Our father among the saints Anysios of Thessaloniki (383/4-406/7) was the student, co-worker and successor of Saint Ascholios to the archbishop's throne in 383/4. Pope Damasos' epistle to Anysios on December 11 384 was for Anysios to act as Vicar to Illyriko. The title honoured to him was also given by Pope Sirikio (384-398). Anysios also played a significant role in the vindication of St. John Chrysostom. His biography is recorded in the Roman martyrologion; he is commemorated by the church December 30 same day as Saint Anysia.
