Who was Athanasius mother? And was he syrian amd greek?
Athanasius I (+872)'s mother : Drosu, of noble family ("on a pas d'autres informations à son sujet")
People from Naples I think
This Drosu was the mother of Athanasius I, bishop of Naples - the question was about the mother of his nephew bishop Athanasius II, who became duke of Naples and died in March or April 898. The name and family of the latter's mother are unknown. His father Gregorius III was a brother of Athanasius I.
Seven ladies named Drosu are listed in Stasser's index, but there is no indication of where their name originated. Although it had the variant spelling Drusu, I can't imagine any reason to suppose it is connected to the Druze (if that's where the notion of Syrian came from).
