Nephon I of Constantinople
Nephon I (Greek: Νήφων) was the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople from 1310 to 1314. From Veria, Greece, he was a lover of luxury and ill-suited for the position. During his time as patriarch the Arsenite schism was healed within the Byzantine Church. Nephon abdicated the throne after four years.
