Domnus I. (2) , bp. of Antioch, appointed a.d. 269 on the deposition of Paul of Samosata, by the sole authority of the council, without any reference to the clergy and people, the bishops evidently fearing they might re-elect Paul (Eus. H. E. vii. 30). Paul, relying on the support of Zenobia, retained for two years the episcopal residence and its church. The orthodox section appealed to Aurelian after he had conquered Zenobia and taken Antioch, a.d. 272. The emperor decided that the right of occupation should belong to the party in communion with the bishops of Italy and the see of Rome. This decision was enforced by the civil power, and Paul was compelled to leave the palace in disgrace (Eus. u.s. ). Domnus died a.d. 274, and was succeeded by Timaeus (Till. Mém. eccl. t. iv. p. 302; Neander, Ch. Hist. vol. i. p. 193, Clark's trans.; Neale, Patr. of Antioch , pp. 52-57).
