Pope Timothy II of Alexandria
Pope Timothy II of Alexandria (died 477), also known as Αἴλουρος/Aelurus (from Greek cat because of his small build or in this case probably "weasel"), succeeded twice in supplanting the Chalcedonian Patriarch of Alexandria.
He was elected and consecrated after the death of the exiled Dioscorus of Alexandria in 454 by the Miaphysite opponents of the Council of Chalcedon and immediately went into hiding.
After Proterius of Alexandria, who has been installed as Patriarch after the Council, was murdered at Timothy's instigation at the baptistery during Easter, he returned openly to Alexandria as Patriarch. He persecuted the Chalcedonians.
In 460, the Emperor expelled him from Alexandria and installed the Chalcedonian Timothy III Salophakiolos as Patriarch.
An uprising in 475 again brought Timothy II back to Alexandria, where he ruled as Patriarch until his death.
