(Νεῖλος/ Neîlos, Latin Nilus). [German version] [1] N. of Ancyra Author of monastic letters and stories, c. 400 A number of monastic letters, stories, apophthegmata, treatises and fragments are attributed to a N. of Ancyra or an ascetic N. in MSS.

If the autobiographical data in the Dihēgḗmata [1. 6044] are not held to be authentic (but so in [4]), little more is known of N. than that he lived in Galatia at the turn of the 4th and 5th cents.

Wenn man die autobiographischen Angaben der Dihēgḗmata [1. 6044] nicht für authentisch hält (so [4]), weiß man über N. wenig mehr, als daß er in Galatien an der Wende vom 4. zum 5. Jh.n.Chr. lebte (vgl. aber die Kr…
