Myakes 1 was a follower of the emperor Justinian II (Ioustinianos 1) whom he accompanied in 704 when he sailed from Cherson to the Danube (Μυάκης δὲ, ὁ οἰκειακὸς αὐτοῦ ἄνθρωπος); recorded in an anecdote about a great storm: Theoph. AM 6196. His name recalls the other name of Theodoros 6 (Myakios); he may be either identical with him or a relative of his.
