John Patrikios

The Oxford Dictionary of Byzantium

Paul A. Hollingsworth

John Patrikios, 

appointed by Emp. Leontios in 697 to lead a naval expedition against the Arabs in North Africa.

John recaptured Carthage and several surrounding towns, but in 698 ʿAbd al-Malik sent a superior fleet, forcing him to retreat for supplies and reinforcements to Crete, where mutinous supporters of Tiberios II killed him.
