Atzypios 1 was named among the iconoclast leaders attacked by John of Damascus (Ioannes 11) and others (τὸν φιλοδαίμονα Ἀτζύπιον): Vita Steph. Iun. 126.9 (1120A). The others named in this passage are Sisinnios 27, Basilios 29 and, probably, Konstantinos 73, all prominent iconoclasts; Atzypios 1 may be identical with Ioannes 140. Atzypios was evidently a nickname; see Auzépy, n. 203. Cf. Atzuppius 1 and see also Kabalos 1.
