When he was summoned in prison he called them and told them that the priest Archillos be his successor and after that Alexandros. He warned them from the creative blasphemy of Arios. HE said that he refrained from accepting him not as a cruelty from him , but because Arios denied the Divinity of Christ. He told them that while in prison he saw an Apparition vision of the LORD Jesus Christ Who appeared to him with torn clothes. When he asked about the reason for that , the answer was that Arios tore His gown so he must not be accepted. When Archillos what sat on the chair after Pope St Peter, Arios begged him to restore him to the Church community , and demonstrated that he regretted what he did before. Archillos had forgotten the will of his predecessor and accepted him in the Church community. He even ordinated him as a priest.
