The Arians took him from Haleb and set him up in Antioch. Going up (into the pulpit) to preach, Meletius showed them, during his sermon, his three fingers; and he said to them: "All three are one." Arians, seeing that he did not agree with them, deposed him, after he had governed (the Church) for two years, and established in his place Euzoius, who was an Arian from Egypt.

“Tliere are three which are understood, but we address them as one".

============================================

This is interesting, but likely a different later Meletius and involves strange ideas of Eusebius about authorship of the Johannine writings.

Meletius is combined with the Eusebius verse suppression!
And we know he did not like three are one.
