Theodoros 6 was also called Myakios; he was a patrikios; in 713 he persuaded Georgios 6 to send troops under Rouphos 1 to Constantinople to overthrow the emperor Philippikos 1 (Θεοδώρου τοῦ πατρικίου τὸ ἐπίκλην Μυακίου, Nic. Brev. de Boor 49, Mango 48:8-9 ; Θεοδώρου πατρικίου τοῦ Μυακίου and Θεόδωρος ὁ Μυάκης, Theoph. AM 6205); shortly after the proclamation of Philippikos's successor Anastasios 6, Theodoros (τὸν πατρίκιον) was blinded: Nic. Brev. de Boor 49, Mango 48, Theoph. AM 6205. He was blinded on the first sabbath after Pentecost in 713 (i.e. on Saturday, 10 June): Theoph. AM 6205. His name Myakios recalls that of Myakes 1. Possibly identical to Theodoros 127.
