Asanes, Michael Palaiologos Komnenos Person
Baldubinos Person Mentioned in the act of the apographeus Manuel Manglabites for Ioannes Sguros Orestes from 1319/1320 or from 1304/1305 and in the chrysobull charter of the Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II Palaiologos for the pansebastos sebastos Ioannes Sguros Orestes from August 1323. Ioannes Sguros Orestes came into possession of certain lands previously held by Baldubinos (Καὶ ἐξ ἀνταλλαγῆς χωραφίων τινῶν κ̣ῦ̣ρ Τα̣ύρου τοῦ του Χρύσου δοθέντων πρὸς τὸν Βαλδουβῖνον χωράφια ταῦτα, ἤ̣γουν ἀπὸ τῆς στάσεως τοῦ Κόκκου προκατεχόμενα̣ παρ’ αὐτ̣οῦ τοῦ Βα̣λδουβίνου). The change of properties between Ioannes Sguros Orestes and Baldubinos was also confirmed by the Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II Palaiologos (Ἕτερον ἐξ ἀλλαγωγῆς χωράφιον ἀπὸ τοῦ Βαλδουβίνου καὶ ἐξ ἀγορασίας ἀπὸ τοῦ Κόκκου μοδίων ὀγδοήκοντα).
Basilikos Nikephoros Person Mentioned in the sources between 1328 and 1342. The sources denote him as κύρος. Governor of Melnik in 1328. Megas Primikerios, between 1333 -1342. He didn’t hand over Melnik to Andronikos III Palaiologos despite the siege and remained loyal to Andronikos II Palaiologos. He was ready to place Melnik in the hands of Andronikos III Palaiologos only after the decease of Andronikos II Palaiologos. He was allowed to carry on as governor of Melnik. He is mentioned in the prostagma of the Byzantine Emperor Andronikos III Palaiologos for the Monastery of Saint John the Baptist near Serres probably from the year 1333. He was one of the witnesses, who authenticated the renewal of the treaty with Venice in 1342.
Bisis Person Mentioned in the chrysobull charter of the Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II for the pansebastos sebastos Ioannes Orestes from August 1323. His sons were inherited serfs of Ioannes Sguros Orestes (ἐντὸς τοῦ κάστρ̣ου Μελενίκου ὀσπήτια ἀπὸ γονικότητος καὶ ανθρώπους γονικοὺς αὐτοῦ τινάς, ἤγουν … τοὺς υἱοὺς τῆς Βίσεως τὸν Γεώργιον καὶ τὸν Θεόδωρον).
Boichnas Person between 01.09.1370 and 31.08.1371 It it doubtful, that he is the same person as „lo jupan Voichna“, who appears in the charter of Vladislav, the son of the former Serbian King Dragutin, adressed to Ragusan authorities from the 25th October 1323. The confirmed terminus ante quem of his decease is September 1370/August 1371 (Prišьdšu že mi vь hramě prěsvetije Bogorodice Hilan’darě, i viděvь grobь gospodina mi i roditelja svetopočiv’šega kesara). It is possible that he was already death in 1369, because the Serbian Despot Ioannes Unklesis (Jovan Unglješa) approved in this year the donation of the Church of the Saint Archangels Michael and Gabriel above Gabrovo granted by Kaisar Boichnas (Voihna) for the monk and spiritual father Daniil (Kako pride kь carьstvu mi čьstni starьcь duhovьnikь kyrь Daniil…Mihaila i Gabrila više Gabrova, i prinese mi zapisanie gospodina….roditelě mi kesara, i viděhь pročtohь čto jestь zapisalь i….kesarь Voihna, i ini hristoljubivi crьkvi onoizi ljud…..zemle: bystь hotěnije carьstvu mi kudě godě mu se što nahodi……hru….ljud…..vinogradь, perivolja, ili i mlinь, ima hotěnije carьstvo mi kako da je……vь věkomь, i da jestь pace svobodna, nikiimь nepotьknovlenno….). He appears as vlastelinь, surodnikь carьstva mi bratučedь Voih’na in the charter of the Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan for the Hilandar Monastery from 1348. He is mentioned as kaisar/kesar in 1351 (Voicha chiessar) and 1355 (Voichna chiesar) in two forged documents of the Serbian Emperors for the town Kotor translated into old Italian. Attested as kaisar and kesarь from 1357 to 1371 (Βοΐχνας ὁ Καῖσαρ). He was the governor of the town Drama in 1357 according to the Byzantine historian Ioannes Kantakuzenos (ὁ δὲ τῆς πόλεως, ἧς ἦρχεν, ἀποδημῶν, Δράμα δὲ ἦν). Sima Ćirković suggests that he held unter his control a much bigger region corresponding with the ruling area of his son-in-law, the Serbian Despot Ioannes Unklesis (Jovan Unglješa). In a later charter of Iakobos Kutaches Philanthropenos Tarchaneiotes from 1405 he is erroneously described as κράλης. His daughter was Euphemia (Jefimija/Elena). He was the father-in-law of the Serbian Despot Ioannes Unklesis (Jovan Unglješa). The Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan confirmed in 1348 at the intervention of his nobleman and most probably also relative Voih’na the previous donation of the village Potolino in the valley of the river Struma to the Hilandar Monastery (I tu vьspomenu carstvu mi vlastelinь, surodnikь carьstva mi bratučedь Voih’na, ō izvěstneišemь po utvrьždeni sela Potolina, iže bě priložilo i po prěžde carьstvō mi Hilan’daru...I po blagosrьdnomu moljeniju i blagoutrobiju kь v’semь svetimь i božьstvnimь crьkvamь bratučeda mi Voih’ne, darova carьtvō mi vь postrum’skomь prědělě: Seloō Potolinovo sь zasel’ci i periōromь, s megjami i sь dohoci sь v’semi pravinami sela togoō). After the death of the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan he was a prominent figure in the circle of the Dušan’s widow Jelena (Helene). He encouraged Mathaios Kantakuzenos at first to invade the territory of Eastern Macedonia. He then betrayted him and joined the army of Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš V. He defeated Mathaios Kantakuzenos at Philippoi in Macedonia in 1357. Mathaios Kantakuzenos was imprisoned by him. He handed over Mathaios Kantakuzenos in summer 1357 to the Byzantine Emperor Ioannes V Palaiologos for a ransom. The Serbian Despot Ioannes Unklesis (Jovan Unglješa) confirmed in 1358 an endowment of his mother-in-law, the wife of Boichnas, for the Kutlumus Monastery (ὅπερ ἐπροσίλοσεν ἡ ἁγία μου κυρία ἡ Κεσάρισα πρὸς αὐτὴν τὴν μονὴν ἐν τι τοποθεσία τὴ ἐπικεκλημένι ἡ Προυνέα χάριν ψυχηκὴς δωρεὰς αὐτῆς ζευγαρίων τεσσάρον... ἐγὼ Οὔγλεσις μέγας βοεβόδας ἀπὸ τὴς αὐτοῦ ἐλεημοσίνης τοὺ αὐθέντου ἡμῶν τοὺ πανευτυχεστάτου δεσπότου καὶ τοὺ ἀδελφοὺ αὐτοὺ τοὺ [...τ...]ου μου στέργο καὶ βεβεῶ τὰ τιαύτα χωράφια εἰς τὴν Προυνέαν γὴν ζευγαρίων τεσάρον ὅπος νέμωσην οἱ τιαύτοι μοναχοὶ τὴς θείας βασιλεικῆς μονῆς τοὺ Κουτλουμούσι ἀκολείτος). The Metropolitan of Drama in 1359 gave his consent to return the metochia of Theotokos Koriliotissa and Hagioi Anargyroi to the Batopedi Monastery after the involvment of Boichnas and his wife. Boichnas and his wife endowed the Batopedi Monastery with the church of Saint Photeine. Boichnas was buried in the Hilandar Monastery at Mount Athos.
Branas Person Mentioned in the chrysobull charter of the Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II for the pansebastos sebastos Ioannes Orestes from August 1323. He and Tzykalas were villeins with proprietary possession of the Sebastos Palates in Radovište. He gave them to his son-in-law Ioannes Sguros Orestes as dowry (ἀλλὰ δὴ καὶ εἰς τὸ Ῥαδοβίσδιν ἀνθρώπους δύο ἐνυποστάτους, τόν τε Βρανᾶν καὶ τὸν Τζυκαλᾶν, οὓς εἶχεν ὁ πενθερὸς αὐτοῦ ὁ σεβαστὸς ὁ Παλάτης ἐκεῖνος διὰ χρυσοβούλλου καὶ ἐπροικοδοτήθησαν τούτω παρ’ αὐτοῦ).
Chreles Stephanos Person 27.12.1345 According to the later tradition and forged documents he came out from the noble family of Ohmućević. He appears for the first time in the history of John Kantakuzenos. In December 1327 he commanded a Serbian auxiliary contingent of twelwe cohorts laying between Drama and Philippoi in support of the Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II. against his grandson Andronikos III. (τοῦ δὲ ἐκ τῶν Τριβαλῶν συμμαχικοῦ, δυοκαίδεκα ταγμάτων ὄντων, ὁ Χρέλης ἐστρατήγει, τῶν τε παρὰ Τριβαλοῖς εὐπατριδῶν καὶ ἀνδρίας καὶ ἐμπειρίας στρατηγικῆς τὰ πρῶτα φέρων παρ’ αὐτοῖς). In 1334–1335, Hrelja reconstructed the church of the Rila Monastery and built the so-called Hrelja's Tower, the monastery's defensive tower and its oldest structure surviving today. The inscription on the tower testifies that by the time of its construction Hrelja still acknowledged Serbian suzerainty bearing the tile of protosevast ((Pri državě gospodina prěvysokago Stepana Dušana kraal sьzyda sьn pirgь gospodinь protosevastь Hrelь sь trudomь velikomь i eksodomь svetomu ōtcu Iōanu Rylskomu i materi božii naricaeměi Ōsěnovica vь lěto 6843 indiktiōnь 5). Sometimes between 1336 and the june 1341 Hrelja deserted from the Serbian king Stefan Uroš IV Dušan. In early 1342 he made contact with Kantakuzenos. It is not clear when he first met Hrelja, though he does refer to Hrelja as being a friend for the most part and that it was through his own initiative that Hrelja came to know Andronikos III. (ὁμοίως δὲ καὶ Χρέλης, ὃς ἦν πρότερον πρὸς Ἀνδρόνικον τὸν βασιλέα ηὐτομοληκὼς ἐκ Τριβαλῶν, στρατιώτας τε ἔχων χιλίους καὶ πόλεις τρεῖς παραδεδωκὼς, ἃς Ῥωμαίων οὔσας ὑπηκόους κατὰ τὸν πρὸς ἀλλήλους τῶν Ἀνδρονίκων βασιλέων πόλεμον κατέσχον οἱ Τριβαλοὶ, τῶν κατεχόντων Ῥωμαίων παραδόντων· οὗτος δὴ οὖν ὁ Χρέλης χρήμασί τε ἐῤῥωμένος καὶ στρατιὰν ἔχων ἀξιόλογον ὑφ’ ἑαυτῷ καὶ πρότερον βασιλεῖ τῷ Καντακουζηνῷ ἐς τὰ μάλιστα φίλος ὢν, (δι’ αὐτοῦ γὰρ καὶ Ἀνδρονίκῳ προσῆλθε τῷ βασιλεῖ,) πέμψας καὶ αὐτὸς, ὅτι τε αἱροῖτο ἐδήλου τὰ ἐκείνου, καὶ παρῄνει καὶ αὐτὸς πρὸς τὴν ἑσπέραν μᾶλλον τρέπεσθαι, ὡς οὐ φαύλης τινὸς αὐτόθεν ἐσομένης ὠφελείας). The Kantakuzenos' statement and the fact that he handed over one thousand soldiers and three cities gives a picture of Hrelja's wealthiness, which is confirmed also by the forged charters concerning the Hrelja's donation of the Church of St. Archangel Michael in Štip to the Monastery of Hilandar.
Eltimeres Person between 01.01.1305 and 31.12.1305 He was probably killed in 1305. He held the title of Despot. The question, who bestowed him with the title of despot, remains unresolved. He ruled almost independently in the region of Krounos (Krŭn) in Rhodope (κατὰ τὸν Κρουνὸν ἐξάρχοντα). He received this territory probably as dowry. He was the brother of the Bulgarian Tsar George Terter I. He was the son-in-law of the Bulgarian Tsar Smilets and his wife Smiltsena Palaiologina (γαμβρόν γε ὄντα Σμιλτζαίνης), since he married their daughter Maria (Marina). His nephew was Theodor Svetoslav. He was the father or the father-in-law of Ioannes Dragusinos (ΕΚΟΙΜΙΘΕΙ Ο ΔΟΥΛΟΣ ΤΟΥ ΘΕΟΥ ΙΩΑΝΝΗΣ Ο ΔΡΑΓΟΥΣΙΝΟΣ ΚΑΙ ΟΙΟΣ ΤΟΥ ΔΕΣΠΟΤΟΥ ΤΟΥ ΑΛΔΙΜΙΡΟΥ). He was apparently of Cuman origin. He acted as a loyal supporter of Smiltsena after the death of her husband. He offered her a place of refuge in the region of Krounos (Krŭn). The Bulgarian Tsar Theodor Svetoslav gained his trust after he donated the fortresses Diampolis (Jambol) and Lardaia to him. Eltimeres defeated and blinded sebastokrator Radoslav, the brother of the Bulgarian Tsar Smilets, who aspired to the Bulgarian throne with the aid of the Byzantines. He handed over Radoslav and the captured byzantine noblemen to the Bulgarian Tsar Theodor Svetoslav. He marched in 1304 with Theodor Svetoslav against the Byzantines, although his mother-in-law and a byzantine embassy tried to dissuade him with gifts and pronoia promises from joining the alliance with the Bulgarian Tsar. Another intercesssion of his mother-in-law ended with success. He switched the sides and fought with the Byzantines against the Bulgarian Tsar. The hostilities led to the reconcquest of the fortresses Diampolis and Lardaia and the capture of the territory of Krounos by the Bulgarian Tsar Theodor Svetoslav.
Georgios (2) Person Mentioned in the chrysobull charter of the Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II for the pansebastos sebastos Ioannes Orestes from August 1323. He and his brother Michael were inherited serfs of Ioannes Sguros Orestes (ἐντὸς τοῦ κάστρ̣ου Μελενίκου ὀσπήτια ἀπὸ γονικότητος καὶ ανθρώπους γονικοὺς αὐτοῦ τινάς, ἤγουν … τοὺς υἱοὺς τοῦ Κιμίνου τόν τε Μιχαὴλ καὶ τὸν Γεώργιον).
Georgios (3) Person Mentioned in the chrysobull charter of the Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II for the pansebastos sebastos Ioannes Orestes from August 1323. He and his brother Theodoros were inherited serfs of Ioannes Sguros Orestes in Melnik (ἐντὸς τοῦ κάστρ̣ου Μελενίκου ὀσπήτια ἀπὸ γονικότητος καὶ ανθρώπους γονικοὺς αὐτοῦ τινάς, ἤγουν … τοὺς υἱοὺς τῆς Βίσεως τὸν Γεώργιον καὶ τὸν Θεόδωρον).
Georgios (5) Person Probably identical with the mesazon Georgios (PLP 4030), who is mentioned by the Byzantine historian Georgios Pachymeres. The mesazon participated in the peace negotiations between Byzantium and Serbia between 1267 and 1269 (καὶ ἤδη καὶ πρὸς Λιπαίνιον ἰόντων, πέμπεται μὲν πρέσβις ἐκεῖθεν ὁ καὶ μεσάζων ἐκείνων, Γεώργιος τοὔνομα, ᾧ δὴ καὶ λόχος ἀνδρῶν ἐνεδρεύσας προσεζημίου). He partook in the arrangment of the marriage project between the Byzantine princess Anna and the Serbian prince Stefan Uroš Milutin, which collapsed. Georgios (PLP 4030) was involved in several Serbian diplomatic envoys to Charles I Anjou, the King of Sicily. Mentioned in the sermon of the Byzantine writer Theodoros Metochites, who undertook the task to arrange the marriage of the Byzantine princess Simonis with the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin. Theodoros Metochites expressed his position and dignity on the court of the Serbian King with the words „καθάπαξ τῷ δεσπότῃ καὶ τῶν σφόδρα, πιστῶς τε καὶ οἰκείως ἐχόντων“. He was the second commander of the Serbian army in the ranking (καὶ μάλιστα ἐν τοῖς ἡμετέροις, τιμῆς τε διὰ ταῦτ’ ἄρα πάντα ἀξιοῦται τὲ καὶ ἐπικέκληται, ἧστινος δὴ ταύτης, ἡγεμὼν ἐν τοῖς τοῦ γένους στρατεύμασι δεύτερος). He was the member of the Serbian advisory council (καὶ κοινωνούντων βουλῆς τε καὶ λόγων καὶ φροντισμάτων· καὶ πάσης σκέψεως· ἅτ’ εὔνους τὲ ὢν αὐτῷ, δὴ, καὶ σφόδρα· καὶ νοῦν ἔχων ἐφ’ ἑκάστοις αὐτῷ κοινωνεῖν· καὶ μεταχειρίζειν τὲ καὶ συμβάλλειν τῶν τε ἔργων καὶ τῶν λόγων). He was the father of the Monk (starec) Isaias according to the opinion of Miodrag A. Purković. Starec Isaias came to the court of the Serbian king in his younger years at his father’s wish. Purković argues for the identity of the commander Georgios and the father of starec Isaias exactly on the account of the closeness to the Serbian king (Rodi že se pri blagočastivěmь i hristoljubivemь samodrьžci vsee srьpskie zemle i podunavskie i pomorskie i arbanaškïe svetomь krali Uroši. Ōtь blagorodnu i blagōčastivu roditelju, ōtьca Geōrgïa matere že Kalïni...běše bo mnogoljubimь roditeli svoimi. i hotěhu jego prědati vь polatu carevi. onь že poslušavь stvori imь volju vь malo vreme). The Father of starec Isaias was married to Kalina. He became a monk with the name Gerasimos. His wife Kalina became a nun with the name Theōdosïa (i sihь prěimenovavь, ōtьca Gerasimь, matere že Theōdosïa). He fought against the byzantine emperor in a battle before 1298. He was captured and imprisoned by the Byzantines. The Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II and the Constantinopolitan elite knew him according to the report of Theodoros Metochites. He was of the initiators and a main proponent of the peace negotiations between the Serbians and Byzantines and the preparation of the marriage. (ἦν δ’ ἐν τούτοις μάλισθ’ ὁ λέγειν ἔχων καὶ πρῶτα φέρων, Γεώργιος· Γεώργιος οἶσθ’ ὃς πρότερον, ἐνειρκτο δέσμιος ἐκ μάχης τῷ βασιλεῖ· συνήθης τὲ ἐκεῖθεν μάλιστ’ ἐκ τῆς χρονίου καθείρξεως αὐτῷ τε βασιλεῖ γεγονὼς, καὶ ἡμῖν· καὶ τὰς παρούσας καταλλαγὰς καὶ συμβάσεις, ἐπὶ τῷ κήδει πρῶτος αὐτόθι προδείξας καὶ ἐνηργμένος· καὶ καθυπουργήσας εἰς τὰ μάλιστα· ὡς ἐντεῦθεν ἄρα, καὶ μάλισθ’ ὡς πεῖραν ἤδη τιν’ ἡμῶν καὶ τῶν ἡμετέρων ἐσχηκὼς κρείττω, ἢ κατὰ τοὺς ἄλλους τῆς ἐκ τοῦ ἔθνους, καὶ τῆς ἁπάσης ἡμῖν προξενεῖν ἀμέλει πρεσβείας ἀξιοῦσθαι. ἕστι δὲ κἀν τοῖς μάλισθ’ ὁ ἀνήρ, καθάπαξ τῷ δεσπότῃ καὶ τῶν σφόδρα, πιστῶς τε καὶ οἰκείως ἐχόντων).
Grěbostrěkь Novakь Person Mentioned in the Life of the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin and in the forged chrysobull charter of the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin concerning the settlement site Ulijara. He was a supreme commander (Veliki vojvoda). The Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin entrusted in 1312/1313 the command over an elite cavalry contingent to him (i davь vь město sebe velikaago vojevodu imь Novaka rekomaago Grěbostrěka). The army supported the Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II Palaiologos against the Turks of Halil, who were encamped near Kallipolis. Novak and his troops fought also with them in the area of Anatolia.
Ioannes Person between 01.01.1386 and 31.12.1387 B: Megas Primikerios, 1357 - 1386; Protosebastos, bis 1357; Herrscher von Chrysopolis/Strymon u. Anaktorupolis (Eleutherupolis/Makedonien) u. Thasos, 1357 - 1386; Statthalter von Christupolis (Kavala), 1365 - 1386 D: † 1386/87 (?) (vor 1394). V: B. (jüngerer) d. ᾽Αλέξιος, Megas Stratopedarches. Heir. ᾽Ασανίνα, ῎Αννα Κοντοστεφανίνα vor 1369. γαμβρός d. Παλαιολόγος ᾽Ιωάννης V. θεῖος d. Παλαιολόγος ᾽Ανδρόνικος IV. L: Gründete zusammen mit seinem B. ᾽Αλέξιος, Megas Stratopedarches, 1362/63 das Pantokrator-Kl. auf d. Athos. Erzielte Teilerfolge im Kampf gegen die Serben im Küstengebiet an der Strymonmündung. Vertrieb 1371 die Türken vom Athos. 1384-08-01 verfaßte er sein Testament. A: Offenbar (trotz OstSer 147-151) doch nicht identisch mit Παλαιολόγος ᾽Ιωάννης, Megas Primikerios, der 1375/76 - 1377 Protostrator war (KydEp II 61. ADochO 239. 247f.). Sein Mönchsname findet sich nur InscrAth 160. Er hatte offensichtlich keine (namentlich bekannten) Kinder. Παλαιογόπουλος u. Δούκας werden zwar von ihm als παιδία bezeichnet (APant 15 ἐκ τῶν δύο μου παιδίων, τοῦ Π. καὶ τοῦ Δ.), doch unterscheidet er zwischen diesen (Dienern od. Schützlingen? auch 14, Z. 123 τὰ παιδία, οὓς [sic!] ἀνέθρεψα ... ἐφάνησαν πιστότατοι usw.) u. deren Kindern (παῖδες Z. 130). Im weiteren spricht er von παιδία u. ἀδελφοί d. Kl.s (14, Z.133. 15, Z.164), als deren κοινὸς πατὴρ καὶ ἀδελφός (Z. 154) er sich erwiesen habe. Vgl. dazu bereits Petit (APant XII), der von "favoris" spricht, sowie BozAsen 343f. Ebenso differenziert er in seinem Testament zwischen ἀδελφοί - "(Mit)brüdern" - u. seinem leiblichen B. (αὐτάδελφος ΑΡant 11, Z. 26). MM I 476 werden er u. sein B. fälschlicherweise kollektiv als οἱ ᾽Αλέξιοι bezeichnet.
Ioannes (5) Person He, his house in the lower town of Melnik and his vineyard were confirmed by the chrysobull charter of the Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II from August 1323 as inherited property of Ioannes Sguros Orestes (ἔτι δὲ καὶ εἰς τὸ ἐμπόριον τοῦ εἰρημένου κάστρου Μελενίκου ἕτερον ὀσπήτιον καὶ ἄνθρωπον γονικὸν αὐτοῦ τὸν Ἰωάννην εὑρισκόμενον εἰς τὸ τοιοῦτον ὀσπήτιον, ἔχοντα δὲ καὶ ἀμπέλιον).
Isaris Georgios Person Deceased by April 1374. He appears as κῦρ, οἰκεῖος of the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan and the Byzantine Emperor Ioannes V. Palaiologos in the sources. He was in charge of Megas Drungarios τοῦ στόλου, 1344. Eparchos, 1348–1350. Megas Primikerios, 1366. Megas Konostaulos, 1367–1374. He was married to Xene Isarina. He had two sons (Michael Angelos Isaris and Theodoros Komnenos Isaris). His son-in-law was Georgios Stanisas. He was a wealthy landowner, who possessed several estates around Thessalonica. He was probably the student of Georgios Akindynos. He also corresponded with him. He was a supporter of the anti-Palamite party. When he turned his coat, he was criticized by Georgios Akindynos as a traitor. He was among the witnesses to the charter of protovestiarites Ioannes Dukas from September 1344, who rejected the claim of the revenue office on the part of the place Diabolokampos, a property of the Docheiariu Monastery. He joined in summer 1345 the proponents of the Byzantine Emperor Ioannes VI Kantakuzenos. He was nearly killed during the revolt of the Zealots. He met Gregorios Palamas on Moun Athos between September 1347 and September 1348. The Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan donated in April 1348 the dependant peasants in the area of Hermelia, which belonged to Georgios Isaris. The Byzantine Emperor Ioannes V. Palaiologos gave in December 1350 several landed estates to Demetrios Kokalas in addition to his oikonomia. He mandated Georgios Isaris with Manuel Chageres to execute the task. He had a 11 years lasting quarrel with the Hilandar Monastery. He required the sum, which Georgios Stanisas, his son-in-law, paid in order to obtain adelphata. When Stanisas died, Isaris tried to get the money of his son-in-law back. He did not even hesitate to forge documents related to the affair. He was a friend of Makarios Chumnos and probably sponsored his foundation of Nea Moni in Thessalonica.
Kaballares Person Mentioned in the chrysobull charter of the Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II Palaiologos for the pansebastos sebastos Ioannes Sguros Orestes from August 1323. He sold a 100 modioi land in the thicket Brimpobos, which was later given to Ioannes Sguros Orestes as dowry (Κέκτηται δὲ καὶ ἀπὸ προικὸς γῆν μοδίων ἑκατὸν εἰς τὸν Βρίμποβον Λόγγον, ἥτις ἦν ἐξ ἀγορασίας ἀπὸ τοῦ Καβαλλάρη ἐκείνου).
Kallinikos (2) Person Mentioned in the sources between 1310 and September 1327. He appears as κῦρ in the charters. He was a Hieromonk. He was a native Serbian. He was an experienced diplomat (ὁ πρεσβευτὴς δὲ μοναχὸς ἦν, Καλλίνικος κεκλημένος, τὸ γένος μὲν καὶ αὐτὸς Τριβαλὸς, εὖ δὲ εἰδὼς καιροῖς καὶ πράγμασι πολιτικοῖς χρῆσθαι δι’ ἐμπειρίαν). The Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin sent him as an emissary to the Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II Palaiologos before 1318. He was also in the service of the Byzantine Emperor. He asked the Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II Palaiologos before January 1318 to award the solder Manuel Garianos with a chrysobull charter. Andronikos II Palaiologos issued a charter for Manuel Garianos, where he guaranted the possession of Garianos at the village Euiane as patrimonial and taxless (Ἐπεὶ ὁ τιμιώτατος ἱερομόναχος κῦρις Καλλίνικος, ἀποσταλεὶς ἀποκρισιάριος εἰς τὴν βασιλείαν μου παρὰ τοῦ περιποθείτου υἱοῦ καὶ γαμβροῦ αὐτῆς τοῦ ὑψηλοτάτου κράλη Σερβείας, καὶ διὸ εὑρίσκεται ἐπιμελούμενος καὶ ἐνεργῶν εἰς τὰς δουλείας τῆς βασιλείας μου καὶ ἔχων ἀναδοχὴν καὶ διάθεσιν παρ’ αὐτῆς, ἐζήτησε καὶ παρεκάλασεν περὶ τοῦ ἀπὸ τοῦ Σερριωτικοῦ μεγάλου ἀλλαγίου Μανουὴλ τοῦ Γαριάνου, ἵνα ποριση̣ται χρυσόβουλλον τῆς βασιλείας μου καὶ κατέχη τὴν γονικὴν αὐτοῦ ὑπόστασιν εἰς τὸ χωρίον τὴν Ηὔνιανην). In 1320/1321 he negotiated in Constantinople about a secret alliance between Andronikos III. Palaiologos and the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin against the Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II Palaiologos. The Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II Palaiologos ceded Kallinikos in September 1321 the small monastery of Saint Nicholas in Kamenikeia near Serres for use (Ἐπεὶ ὁ τιμιώτατος ἱερομόναχος κῦρ Καλλίνικος εὑρίσκεται ἄνθρωπος καλὸς καὶ τρέφων καθαρωτάτην εὔνοιαν εἰς τὴν βασιλείαν μου καὶ ἐπιμελούμενος εἰς τὰς δουλείας αὐτῆς, παρεκλήτευσεν ἵνα πορίσηται χρυσόβουλλον τῆς βασιλείας μου καὶ ἐπιλάβηται καὶ κατέχῃ τὸ περὶ τὰς Σέρρας εἰς τὴν τοποθεσίαν τῆς Καμενικείας διακείμενον μονύδριον τὸ εἰς ὅνομα τιμώμενον τοῦ παμμάκαρος ἁγίου Νικολάου, καὶ ἐπιμεληθῇ καὶ συστήσῃ καὶ βελτιώσῃ αὐτὸ καὶ ἔχῃ ὡς ἴδιον αὐτοῦ παρ’ ὅλην αὐτοῦ τὴν ζωήν, μετὰ δὲ τὴν ἀποβίωσιν αὐτοῦ). Kallinikos obtained in 1321 one third of the village Mamitzon. In 1322 he received two plots of land near Kamenikeia from the sebastos Athanasios, who was his spiritual son (ἡμεῖς οἱ ἐνταῦθα σιγνογραφήσαντες, ἀποχαριζόμεθα οἰκείᾳ βουλῇ καὶ θελήσει πρὸς σὲ τὸν ἐν μοναχοῖς τιμιώτατον καὶ κατὰ κύριον αὐθέντην καὶ πατέρα ἡμῶν κῦρ Καλλίνικον τὰ ἐκγονικόθεν ἡμῖν περιελθόντα χωράφια, τὰ ἐν τῇ τοποθεσίᾳ τῆς Καμενικείας εὑρισκομενα ἐν δυσὶ τόποις, ἀφ’ ὧν τὸ μὲν ἕν κομμάτιον τὸ πλησίον τοῦ πρωτοψάλτου, τὸ δὲ ἕτερον κομμάτιον πλησίον τοῦ ἀποιχομένου ἐκείνου Ῥάσκομον καλουμένου, τὰ ὅσα καὶ οἱα εἰσί, καθὼς ἐνέμοντο καὶ ἐδεσπόζοντο παρ’ ἡμῶν, καὶ ἔχειν σε ἐπ’ ἐξουσίᾳ τὸν ἐν μοναχοῖς τιμιώτατων κῦρ Καλλίνικον τὸν κατὰ κύριον αὐθέντην καὶ πατέρα ἡμῶν ποιεῖν ἐπ’ αὐτοῖς ὡς δόξει σοι, ἀφιερεῖσθαι ἐν τῇ σεβασμίᾳ μονῇ ἢ ἔνθα βούλει, ἡμῶν ἀποβαλλομένων τὴν τῶν εἰρημένων χωραφίων δεσποτείαν, ποιεῖν δὲ ἐν αὐτοῖς τὸν συνήθη παρ’ ἡμῶν δεφενσίωνα· διὰ γὰρ τοῦτο ἐγεγόνει καὶ τὸ παρὸν ἡμέτερον γράμμα καὶ ἐπεδόθη σοι τῷ εἰρημένῳ μοι αὐθέντῃ καὶ πατρὶ κῦρ Καλλινίκῳ εἰς βεβαίαν ἀσφάλειαν). The Metropolitan of Thessalonike granted the Monastery of Saint George Kanites in Thessalonike to Kallinikos. The Byzantine Emperor Andronikos III Palaiologos confirmed the donation of the Metropolitan of Thessalonike in July 1323 (Ἐπεὶ ὁ ἱερώτατος μητροπολίτης Θεσσαλονίκης ἔξαρχος πάσης Θετταλίας καὶ ὑπέρτιμος δέδωκε διὰ γράμματος αὐτοῦ πρὸς τὸν τιμιώτατον ἱερομόναχον κῦρ Καλλίνικον τὴν ἐντὸς τῆς θεοσώστου πόλεως Θεσσαλονίκης σεβασμίαν μονὴν τὴν ἐπ’ ὀνόματι τετιμημένην τοῦ ἁγίου ἐνδόξου μεγαλομάρτυρος καὶ τροπαιοφόρου Γεωργίου καὶ ἐπικεκλημένην τοῦ Κανίτου μετὰ πάσης τῆς νομῆς καὶ τῶν δικαίων αὐτῆς, προέβη δὲ εἰς τοῦτο καὶ χρυσόβουλλον τοῦ ἁγίου μου αὐθέντου καὶ βασιλέως τοῦ πάππου τῆς βασιλείας μου, καὶ ἐδεήθη ὁ ῥηθεὶς ἱερομόναχος κῦρ Καλλίνικος τυχεῖν καὶ χρυσοβούλλου τῆς βασιλείας μου, ἡ βασιλεία μου τὴν τοιαύτην παράκλησιν αὐτοῦ προσδεξαμένη διὰ τὸν ἀγῶνα καὶ τὴν ἐπιμέλειαν καὶ τὴν σπουδήν, ἣν δεικνύει εἰς τὰς δουλείας τῆς βασιλείας ἡμῶν, καὶ διὰ τὴν εὔνοιαν καὶ τὸν ζῆλον καὶ τὴν πίστιν, ἣν τρέφει ἀκραιφνῆ εἰς τὴν βασιλείαν μου, καὶ ὅτι κατανοεῖ αὐτὸν τῆς αὐτῆς μέλλοντα ἔχεσθαι καὶ ἔτι προθέσεως, τὸν παρόντα χρυσόβουλλον λόγον αὐτῆς προβῆναι εὐδοκεῖ, δι’ οὗ προστάσσει καὶ διορίζεται κατέχειν τὸν τοιοῦτον ἱερομόναχον κῦρ Καλλίνικον τὴν ῥηθεῖσαν μονὴν μετὰ τῶν αὐτῇ προσόντων πάντων ἀναφαιρέτως, ἀνενοχλήτως παντάπασι καὶ ἀδιασείστως, ἐφ’ ὅρῳ τῆς αὐτοῦ βιοτῆς, καὶ ἔχειν ἄδειαν συνιστᾶν καὶ βελτιοῦν καὶ αὔξειν αὐτὴν καθὼς ἂν προαιρῆται καὶ δύνηται). He donated the monastery of Saint Nicholas in Kamenikeia near Serres to the Hilandar Monastery in October 1323. The Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II Palaiologos confirmed his endowment in September 1327.
Karbunares Person Mentioned in the deed of gift of Georgios Kontostephanos Kalameas and his wife Eirene Kontostephanina Kapantritissa for the Monastery of Iberon from December 1309, in the act of the apographeus Manuel Manglabites for Ioannes Sguros Orestes from 1319/1320 or from 1304/1305 and in the chrysobull charter of the Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II Palaiologos for the pansebastos sebastos Ioannes Sguros Orestes from August 1323. He sold a place called Malesta near Melnik to Georgios Kontostephanos Kalameas (καὶ γὰρ τὸ σύνεγγυ̣ς τοῦ κάστρου Μελενίκου, τὸ ἐν τῆ τοποθεσία τῆς Μάλεστας, τὸν ἐξ αγορασίας μου τόπον ἀπὸ τοῦ Καρβουνάρη ἐκείνου). He also sold a field in the katepanikion Diakastron to Ioannes Sguros Orestes before 1319/1320 (Καὶ χωράφιον πλησίον ταύτης ἐξ ἀγορᾶς ἀπ̣ὸ̣ τοῦ Καρ̣βωνάρη ἐκ̣είνου μοδίων δ̣έκ̣α). He bought an 11 modioi vineyard with a nearby wasteland in Malesta from Mitas and sold it to Ioannes Sguros Orestes (Καὶ εἰς τὴν Μάλεσ̣τ̣αν ἀ̣μ̣πέλιον ἐξ ἀγορᾶς ἀπὸ τ̣ο̣ῦ̣ δηλωθέντο̣ς Καρβωνά̣ρ̣η̣ παρὰ τοῦ ε̣ἰ̣ρ̣ημένου Μιτᾶ ἐκείνου μοδίων ἕνδεκα, καὶ χέρσον μερικὸν συμπαρακ̣είμ̣εν̣ον). He sold a part from a 100 modioi field to Ioannes Sguros Orestes (καὶ χωράφιον ἐξ ἀγορασίας ὡσαύτως ἀπὸ τοῦ Καρβωνάρη καὶ τοῦ Λιτοβόη ἐκείνου καὶ ἀπὸ ἑτέρων ὡσεὶ μοδίων ἑκατόν). He vended also a vineyard in Malesta to Ioannes Sguros Orestes, where a 20 modioi vineyard was set out by the latter (Ἔτι δὲ καὶ ἀμπέλιον εἰς τὴν Μάλεσταν ἐξ ἀγορασίας ἀπὸ τοῦ δηλωθέντος Καρβωνάρη, ἐν ὧ κατεφυτεύθη παρ’ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἕτερον ἀμπέλιον μοδίων εἴκοσι, σὺν τῆ ἐκεῖσε εὑρισκομένη χερσαία γῆ).
Kasandrenos Person Mentioned in the sources from 1300 to 1335. He appears as πανσέβαστος σεβαστός and οἰκεῖος of the Byzantine emperor Andronikos II Palaiologos in the sources. He held the position of λογαριαστὴς τῆς αὐλῆς. He owned some land near Ropalia in 1300. His property near Topolobikos is mentioned in the praktikon of Demetrios Apelmene from March 1301, in the praktikon of Konstantinos Kunales, Demetrios Kontenos and the Prokathemenos Leon Kalognomos from November 1318 and in the praktikon of Konstantinos Pergamenos and Georgios Phariseos from September 1320. He was the addressee of a letter written by Michael Gabras between 1315 and 1319. His name was erased in the letter. He possessed estates in the village Chudena before 1318 (surely long before July 1334). He owned the village τοῦ Γεωργηλᾶ with the hamlet Apidea and the village τοῦ Εὐνούχου with the manor Goreantzes before March 1319. He is mentioned in the decision charter of Esaias, the Patriarch of Constantinople, and the synod concerning the dispute between Sebastos Konstantinos Muzalon and Nikolaos Kephalas from April 1324. He is probably identical with the Kasandrenos, who joined on the 20th March 1326 together with Andronikos Komnenos Dukas Palaiologos Tornikes at Amphipolis the embassy from Constantinople heading to the Serbian king. He unjustly acquired the rights for fishing at Chudena and Neboliane before 1333.
Katotikos Ioannes Person Mentioned in the chrysobull charter of the Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II for the pansebastos sebastos Ioannes Orestes from August 1323. His children were inherited serfs of Ioannes Sguros Orestes in Melnik (ἐντὸς τοῦ κάστρ̣ου Μελενίκου ὀσπήτια ἀπὸ γονικότητος καὶ ανθρώπους γονικοὺς αὐτοῦ τινάς, ἤγουν...καὶ τοὺς παῖδας Ἰωάννου τοῦ Κατωτικοῦ λεγομένου).

Kokkos Person Mentioned in the act of the apographeus Manuel Manglabites for Ioannes Sguros Orestes from 1319/1320 or from 1304/1305 and in the chrysobull charter of the Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II Palaiologos for the pansebastos sebastos Ioannes Sguros Orestes from August 1323. He was the previous owner of the lands, which acquired Baldubinos and later Ioannes Sguros Orestes (χωράφια ταῦτα, ἤ̣γουν ἀπὸ τῆς στάσεως τοῦ Κόκκου προκατεχόμενα̣ παρ’ αὐτ̣οῦ τοῦ Βα̣λδουβίνου). He held some possessions in the vicinity of the 30 modioi land of Ioannes Sguros Orestes below Besobitza (Χωράφιον κ̣ατωτ̣έρω τῆς Βησο̣β̣ίτζης διακείμενον καὶ πλησίον τῆ̣ς̣ ἐκε̣ῖ̣σε ὁδοῦ τοῦ ..ιβ̣όν καὶ τῶν ἐναπολ̣ε̣ι̣φθέντων χ̣ω̣ρ̣αφίων ἐξ αὐτῆς τῆς στάσεως τοῦ Κόκκου μοδίων τριάκοντα). He gave by exchange a 11 modioi to Ioannes Sguros Orestes near the threshing floor, the property of Amnon and the road (ὡ̣σαύτως ἐξ ἀνταλλαγῆς ἕτερον χωράφ̣ιον ἀπὸ τῆς αὐτῆς στάσεως τοῦ Κόκκου καὶ πλησίον τοῦ ἁλωνίου τοῦ δηλωθέντος Ὀρέστου, τοῦ Ἀμνὼν καὶ τῆς ἐκεῖσε ὁδοῦ μοδίων ἕνδεκα). Ioannes Sguros Orestes came into possession of 10 modioi field owned previously by Kokkos, which was in the vicinity of the properties of Turkaris, Amnon and Botrydas and a road (καὶ ἕτερον ἐξ αὐτῆς τῆς στάσεως τοῦ Κόκκο̣υ̣ εἰς τὸν αὐτὸν τόπον καὶ πλησίον τοῦ εἰρημένου Τούρκαρι, τοῦ Ἀμνών, τοῦ Βο̣τρυδ̣ᾶ καὶ τῆς ἐκεῖσε ὁδοῦ μοδίων δέκα). The chrysobull charter of the Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II Palaiologos confirmed the selling of several fields owned by Kokkos to Ioannes Sguros Orestes (καὶ ἐξ ἀγορασίας ἀπὸ τοῦ Κόκκου μοδίων ὀγδοήκοντα·ὡσαύτως ἐξ ἀγορασίας ἀπὸ τοῦ αὐτοῦ Κόκκου χωράφιον μοδίων ἑπτά, καὶ ἕτερον χωράφιον ἐξ ἀγορασίας ἀπὸ τοῦ αὐτοῦ Κόκκου μοδίων δέκα, ἅπερ εἶχον οἱ εἰρημένοι ἀπὸ γονικότητος).
Komnene Eudokia Person The last mentioned date of her appearance in the sources is the year 1395. The sources refer to her as κυρὰ, δέσποινα, before 1395. She was the daughter of Alexios III Komnenos, who was the Emperor of Trapezunt and Theodora Komnene Kantakuzene. She was married to Tāj al-Dīn (Τατζιατίνης), the Emir of Jānīk, on 8th October 1379. Her second husband was Konstantinos Dragases (Konstantin Dragaš) or the Byzantine Emperor Ioannes V Palaiologos after 24th October 1386. Her grandson was the Byzantine Emperor Konstantinos XI Palaiologos. Michael Panaretos relates about her journey from Constantinople to the Monastery of Saint Phocas at Kordyle on 4th September 1395. On the following day she returned back to Trapezunt. Georgios Sphrantzes wrote as an argument for the marriage of the Byzantine Emperor Konstantinos XI Palaiologos with Mara Branković the fact, that also Eudokia had married a Turkish chieftain and bore him a child, before she became the wife of Konstantinos’ XI. grandfather. The problem in the account of Sphrantzes is that he does not mention if the husband of Eudokia was from the paternal or maternal side of Konstantinos. Raymond-Joseph Loenertz, Ivan Đurić, Radivoj Radić, Hristo Matanov, Mihailo Popović and Anthony Kaldellis suggest that her husband was Konstantinos Dragases, other scholars plead for the Byzantine Emperor Ioannes V Palaiologos, who appears as the husband of Eudokia in the historical work of Laonikos Chalkokondyles.
Kotanitzes Tornikios Person Mentioned in the sources from 1280 to 1306. He was Monk of the Peribleptos Monastery in Constantinople in 1280–1283 and monk of the Μεγίστη μονή in Prusa, 1283. He held the position of Deputy commander (ὑποστράτηγος) during his stay at the Serbian court, 1297. As an outlaw, who rebelled against the Byzantine Emperor, he joined the Serbs before 1280. In 1280 he commanded the Serbian troops and plundered the Macedonian borderland till Serres. He was captured by the Byzantines. In 1283 he fled from the Μεγίστη μονή in Prusa and sought asylum at the Serbian court. Around 1297 he together with the Serbian troops looted the border regions of Macedonia. The Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin handed over Kotanitzes Tornikios to Byzantines as a consequence of the peace agreement. Kotanitzes Tornikios is attested in 1306. Probably he was still in prison. According to the historian Georgios Pachymeres the Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II Palaiologos ordered to put the rebellious general Kassianos in prison together with Kotanitzes Tornikios. Gordana Tomović assumes that Kotanitzes Tornikios is the same person as the Despot Tornikos from the inscription of the gramatikь Nestorь in the Church of Saint George at Gorni Kozjak
Koteanitzes Leon Person Mentioned in the charter of the Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II. Palaiologos from 1293. He was κῦρ and an οἰκεῖος of the Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II Palaiologos. The Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II Palaiologos donated in 1293 the land in Preasnitza with mills and nut trees, which was held by the Vlachs before, to Leon Koteanitzes in appreciation of his military service against the enemies (Ἐπεὶ ὁ οἰκεῖος τ̣ῆ̣ βασιλεία μου κῦρ Λέων ὁ Κοτεανίτζης ἐπέδειξε μὲν τὴ̣ν̣ πρὸς τὴν βασιλείαν μου πίστιν καὶ ὑπόληψιν αὐ̣τοῦ ἀκραιφνῆ καὶ ἐφάνη κατὰ διαφόρους καιρ̣ο̣ὺ̣ς̣ χρή̣σιμος καὶ λυσιτ̣ε̣λὴς ἐξαιρ̣έ̣τ̣ω̣ς̣ εἰς ἐ̣π̣ι̣θέσεις ἐχθρῶν, ἀπειλούντων β̣λάβην μ̣ε̣γ̣άλην καὶ ζημίαν εἰς τὴν χώραν̣ καὶ ε̣ἰ̣ς̣ τὰ κάσ̣τ̣ρα τῆ̣ς̣ βασιλείας μου, ἐζήτησε δὲ καὶ παρε̣κάλεσε χ̣ρ̣υ̣σοβούλλο̣υ̣ τυ̣χεῖν τῆ̣ς βασιλείας μο̣υ̣ ἐπὶ τῶ κατέχειν τ̣ὴ̣ν̣ εἰς τὴν Π̣ρ̣ε̣άσνιτζαν εὑρισκομένην γῆν, ἥτις ἀπεσπάσθη ἀπὸ διαφόρων Βλάχ̣ω̣ν̣, τ̣ὴ̣ν̣ παράκλησιν α̣ὐ̣τοῦ εὐμενῶς προσδεξαμένη ἡ βασιλεία μου̣ τὸ̣ν παρόντα̣ χ̣ρ̣υ̣σόβουλλον ΛΌΓΟΝ ἐπιχορηγεῖ καὶ ἐ̣πιβραβεύει αὐτῶ, δι’ οὗ π̣ροστάσσει καὶ δ̣ι̣ορίζεται κατέχε̣ι̣ν̣ τ̣ὸν τ̣ο̣ιοῦτον οἰκεῖον τῆ βασιλεία̣ μου κῦρ Λέοντα τὸν Κο̣τε̣α̣ν̣ίτζην τὴν ὅλην γῆν καὶ π̣εριο̣χὴν τ̣ῆς Πρεάσνιτζας μετ̣ὰ τῶν ἐκεῖσ̣ε̣ εὑρισκομένων μυλώνων καὶ καρυῶν, ἥ̣τις̣ ἄρχε̣ται ἀπὸ τοῦ συνόρου τοῦ Πέτρου κ̣α̣ὶ̣ ἀνέρχεται τὸ ἀν̣απόταμον δι’ ὅ̣λου τοῦ ποτα̣μοῦ τῆς Πρε̣ασνίτζου).
Kyparissiotes Ioannes Person Although the soldier is named only as Kyparissiotes, he is with all likelihood identical with the anti-palamite writer Ioannes Kyparissiotes.

He was a bad soldier, but well educated. He helped Mathaios Kantakuzenos and offered him his own horse, when Mathaios lost his horse during the campaign against the Byzantine Emperor Ioannes V Palaiologos. He was captured short before 1357 by the Serbian allies of the Byzantine Emperor Ioannes V Palaiologos and arrested temporarily (Κυπαρισσιώτης, εἷς τῶν οἰκετῶν περὶ στρατείας μὲν καὶ μάχας οὐ μάλιστα ἠσχολημένος, λόγοις δὲ ἐσχολακὼς, διέσωζε τό γε ἧκον εἰς αὐτόν. ἀποβὰς γὰρ αὐτὸς τοῦ ἵππου, παρείχετο τῷ βασιλεῖ, εἰς προὖπτον κίνδυνον ἑαυτὸν ἑκοντὶ καταπροέμενος. αὐτίκα γὰρ ὑπὸ τῶν ἐπιόντων Τριβαλῶν συνελαμβάνετο· καὶ δεσμωτήριον οἰκήσας ἐπὶ χρόνον). He had to leave Constantinople probably in 1368. He stayed in Cyprus in the summer 1371. Between November 1376 and December 1377 he was in the entourage of the Pope Gregory XI on his journey from Avignon to Rome and received financial support from him. In 1378/1379 he probably came back to Constantinople. It seems that he converted to Catholicism. He belonged to circle of scholars, who had contact with Nikephoras Gregoras. He is an author of the systematical exposition of theological texts (Τῶν θεολογικῶν ῥήσεων στοιχειώδης ἔκθεσις). He wrote 5 books against the heresy of Palamites. Nine hyms to the word of God are attributed to him. He composed a short treatise about the question if the personal properties in Trinity differ from the divine essence.

Margarites Ioannes Person Attested in the sources between 1342 and 1372/1373. He appears as κῦρ and οἰκεῖος of the Byzantine Emperor Ioannes V Palaiologos and of the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan in the sources. He held the position of the Megas Hetaireiarches in 1348. According to the Praktikon issued in January 1342 by Michal Papylas Romanos was Ioannes Margarites the recipient of a confiscated land from Arsenios Tzamplakon located between Serres and Zichna and of a zeugelateion, which belonged to Kantakuzenos, near Zichna. He became these estates with the revenue of 55 hyperpyra and was fully exempted from paying taxes (κῦρ Ἰωάννην τὸν Μαργαρίτην ἀπὸ τῆς περὶ τὰ Ζίχνα καὶ τὰς Σέῤῥας ἀφαιρεθείσης ἀρτίως οἰκονομίας παρὰ τοῦ Τζαμπλάκωνος κυροῦ Ἀρσενίου, ἔτι δὲ καὶ ἀπὸ τοῦ περὶ τὰ Ζίχνα διακειμένου ζευγηλατείου τοῦ Καντακουζηνοῦ, ποσότητα ὑπερπύρων πεντήκοντα πέντε, καὶ κατέχῃ καὶ νέμηται ταύτην ἐλευθέραν πάντη καὶ ἀκαταδούλωτον). The possession of Ioannes Margarites at Kato Uska and Rachoba was declared exempt from the 9 nomismata tax and hereditary by the prostagma of the Byzantine Emperor Ioannes V. Palaiologos from October 1342. The former estates of Tzako [...], most probably Arsenios Tzamplakos, consisted of arable land and vineyards (Ἐπεὶ ὁ οἰκεῖος τῆ βασιλεία μου ὁ Μαργαρίτης κέκτηται δι’ ἀπογραφικῶν ἀποδείξεων τοῦ τε οἰκείου τῆς βασιλείας μου μεγάλου χαρτουλαρίου κυροῦ Ἰωάννου τοῦ Βατάτζη, καὶ τοῦ πανσεβάστου σεβαστοῦ οἰκείου τῆ βασιλεία μου ὀρφανοτρόφου κυροῦ Κωνσταντίνου [ ] εἴς τε τὸ χωρίον τὴν Κάτω Οὔσκαν καὶ τὴν Ῥάχοβαν ἀπό τε Τζάκω[ ] ὑποστάσεων καὶ δημοσιακῶν γῆν τινα καὶ ἀμπέλια). Ioannes Margarites granted his land at Kato Uska to the Monastery of Saint John Prodromos near Serres. The Serbian King Stefan Uroš IV Dušan confirmed the gift of Ioannes Margarites in the chrysobull charter, which was issued in October 1345. The Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan confirmed the endowment of Ioannes Margarites to the Batopedi Monastery in April 1348. It consisted of a property near the village Dratzoba, land in the vicinity of Mikra Neboliane, a property in the town of Kaisaropolis, a piece of land not far from the town Chrysupolis, house and a church in the town Chrysopolis (ὁ οἰκεῖος τῆ βασιλεία μου μέγας εταιρειάρχῃς κῦρ Ἰωάννης ὁ Μαργαρίτης δι’ τῆς βασιλείας μου ὅσον ἐκέκτητο περὶ Δράτζοβαν τὸ χωρίον καὶ γῆν εἰς τὴν Μικρὰν Νεβόλιανιν καὶ ὅσον εἶχεν εἰς τὴν Καισσαρόπολιν ἅτινα προκατεῖχε διὰ χρυσοβούλλου τῆς βασιλείας μου, ἀλλὰ δὴ καὶ τὴν εἰς τὴν Χρυσούπολιν γῆν αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἐντὸς τοῦ κάστρου ἐκκλησίαν καὶ ὀσπήτιν). He became a monk in the Monastery of Saint John Prodromos near Serres. He probably requested a firman from the Ottoman Sultan. The Monastery of Saint John Prodromos near Serres obtained the charter from Ottoman Sultan Murad I in 1372/1373. The monastery is mentioned in the charter as the church of Margaritis.
Marinos Person Mentioned in the chrysobull charter of the Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II Palaiologos for the pansebastos sebastos Ioannes Sguros Orestes from August 1323. He had brothers. He and his siblings sold a meadow to Ioannes Sguros Orestes (Ἕτερον χωράφιον ἐξ ἀλλαγωγῆς σὺν τῶ ἐκεῖσε λιβαδίω καὶ ἐξ ἀγορασίας ἀπὸ τοῦ Μαρίνου καὶ τῶν αὐταδέλφων αὐτοῦ μοδίων πεντήκοντα).
Maurophoros Michael Person Mentioned in the sources between 1327 and 1356. He appears between 1327 and 1335 as οἰκεῖος of the Byzantine Emperor Andronikos III Palaiologos and in 1348 as οἰκεῖος of the Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan. He held the position of the κριτὴς τοῦ φοσσάτου (military judge), before 1348. He is attested as a military judge in Serres between 1327 and 1335. He was a Ioannes VI. Kantakuzenos supporter in the civil war. He possessed а 300 modioi large land near Neboliane called Harmenon. The Byzantine Emperor Ioannes V Palaiologos confiscated his land in November 1344 for the sake of treachery and gave it to the stratopedarches Ioannes Chumnos (καὶ τὴν Νεβόλιανιν τὴν καλουμένην Ἅρμενον, ἅπερ προκατεῖχεν ὁ ἄπιστος Μαυροφόρος). The Serbian Emperor Stefan Uroš IV Dušan granted in April 1348 the endowment of Michael Maurophoros to the Batopedi Monastery. It consisted of his wife’s dowry, his hereditary land and of bought estates. Michael Maurophoros donated along these lands also houses in Zichna, vineyards, fields outside the town, summer residence in Gradistion with garden and houses, which he became from the Byzantine Emperor Ioannes V Palaiologos, to the Batopedi Monastery (ὁμοίως καὶ ὅσα ἀφιέρωσεν ὁ οἰκεῖος τῆ βασιλεία μου κριτὴς τοῦ φοσσάτου ὁ Μαυροφόρος ἀπὸ τε προικὸς αὐτοῦ καὶ γονικότητος καὶ ἐξ ἀγορασίας, τά τε ἐντὸς τοῦ κάστρου ὀσπήτια καὶ ἐκτός, ἀμπέλια καὶ χωράφια, μετὰ παντὸς τοῦ εἰς τὸ Γραδίστον καθίσματος, τοῦ περιβολίου καὶ τῶν οἰκημάτων καὶ πάσης τῆς νομῆς καὶ περιοχῆς αὐτοῦ, καὶ τὰ χωράφια ἅπερ εἶχε διὰ χρυσοβούλλου). The chrysobull charter of the Byzantine Emperor Ioannes V Palaiologos from September 1356 gives account that Michael Maurophoros bestowed more property on the Batopedi Monastery.

Chrysobull Charter of the Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II. Palaiologos for the Monastery Iberon on Mount Athos from June 1283 Source The Chrysobull Charter of the Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II. Palaiologos from June 1283 confirmed the possessions of the Monastery Iberon on Mount Athos.
Skopje Sveti Nikita 1 Source In ca. 1299/1300 the Byzantine Co-Emperor Michael IX Palaiologos (reigned 1295-1320) issued a charter for the Tower of Hrusija (Pyrgos Basileiu) of the Monastery of Chilandar on the Holy Mount Athos, through which the possessions of the Monastery of Sveti Nikita in and near Skopje were confirmed.
Skopje Sveti Nikita 2 Source In ca. 1299/1300 (or 1308?) the Byzantine Emperor Andronikos II Palaiologos (reigned 1282-1328) confirmed, at the instigation of the Serbian King Stefan Uroš II Milutin (reigned 1282-1321), the possessions of the Monastery of Sveti Nikita near Skopje for the Tower of Hrusija (Pyrgos Basileiu) of the Monastery of Chilandar on the Holy Mount Athos. This charter is only preserved in a Serbian translation. It seems plausible that Andronikos II had also issued a Greek charter in the years 1299/1300, because a parallel Byzantine charter on this topic is preserved by his Co-Emperor Michael IX Palaiologos (reigned 1295-1320), which was issued most probably in the years 1299/1300 and in which most of the mentioned places had also been donated.
