Calendion (also, Calandion or Callandion) was the Patriarch of Antioch between 479 and 485.

Biography[edit]

Calendion supported the results of the Council of Chalcedon, but refused to accept the Henotikon of 482, through which the Byzantine Emperor, Zeno, attempted to reconcile the pro- and anti-Chalcedonian sides. This was because Calendion regarded it as a covert attempt to overturn the council's holdings.

Calendion supported the rebellion of Illus in 484, and as a result was deposed and banished by Zeno shortly thereafter, being replaced as Patriarch by Peter II.
