'''Arsachie din Tars'''
was the Archbishop of Constantinople, succeeding St. [[Ioan Gură de Aur]] in 404. He was not accepted by the people of Constantinople due the conditions under which he was elected and served only for a little more than one year. He was the brother of Archbishop of Constantinople [[ Nectarius of Constantinople| Nectarius]] . His [[ feast day]] is [[ October 11]], with Abp. [[ Sisinus of Constantinople|Sisinus]].
Abp. Arsacius was a native of Tarsus in Kikilia. He was probably born in the latter part of the second decade of the fourth century. Little is known of his early life. His brother, Nectarius, who was the immediate predecessor of St. John Chrysostom, had selected Arsacius to be Bishop of Tarsus. However, he refused the appointment, allegedly because he had designs on succeeding his brother as Archbishop of Constantinople.
In such a great atmosphere of chaos the episcopate of Arsacius did not last long. A feeble character worn out by old age soon brought an end to his reign, Arsacius reposed on [[November 11]], 405.
