In hagiography: John the Camel-Driver was commemorated in Thomas of Marga's Book of Governors [http://syriaca.org/work/1290] . In this account, Maran Zha, bishop of Ḥadita on the Tigris, heard a camel driver singing Syriac chants among the Arab camel drivers. This man, John, had been a Syriac bishop of the Egyptian diaspora before he was captured by the Bedouins. He was entombed near Ḥadita, but only his habit was found.
