Narseh or Nasr was a Kurd[edit]

According to this source:

I. Sevcenko, Review of New Cambridge History of the Byzantine Empire, Slavic Review, p.109-118, 1968. (see page 111)

Narseh was a Kurd. He converted to Christianity and assumed the new name Theophobos.Heja Helweda 22:05, 14 February 2007 (UTC)

Poorly written[edit]

This article has a NPOV leaning towards the Muslim particulars. Example: "That outstanding general bore the full force of the Byzantine attack." [Emphasis mine] We do not state that someone was "great" or otherwise unless scholars have deemed it part of a person's title. I urge removal. The rest of the article excludes better detailed emphasis on Emperor Theophilos' improvement of the economy and growth of commerce. Jtpaladin (talk) 15:34, 19 January 2008 (UTC)

Poorly written and missing information...[edit]

"Theophilos never recovered from the blow; his health gradually failed..." What are we talking about that he received some type of "...blow...". It doesn't say. Please re-write this to make more sense. Dinkytown talk 19:36, 18 August 2012 (UTC)
