Polyeuctus sounds like something you cough up and spit out.

Alexander Akimetes was a character-after several adventures, he ended up in the desert and came upon a bunch of robbers. He fell in with them, converted them and when their leader died, took over. He then turned his merry band into a bunch of monks and their den into a monastery.

However, he had itchy feet and took off again-"Alexander was a somewhat restless archimandrite, fond of new places and faces. So, he formed a travelling monastery. With 150 monks he journeyed from place to place, until his followers numbered 300. These he divided into six choirs, to sing in turn the divine office and thus maintain, day and night, unceasing praise, and hence came their name of the Sleepless Ones (akoimetoi).

Thus was the first road show formed, sans tour bus of course..
