In hagiography: Shlemun the Mourner was bishop of Ḥadita on the Tigris towards the middle of the VIII century. He converted Muslims for which he was beaten and made to shave his beard and head. He had a rivalry with ʿIsa ibn Shahlupa, the head of doctors of the caliph, concerning taxes imposed on Christians by Muslim authorities. He opposed the election of Catholicos Timothy I in 780. He died at the monastery of Mar Ahrun near Balad.
