One of the Fathers of the Egyptian Desert. Probably a native from Egypt, he retired with several of his brothers into the desert around Skete where they lived as hermits. After a raid by Berbers forced them to flee in 408, they settled in the ruins of the pagan temple at Terenuthis. Poemon served as abbot for the community, alternating the leadership with his brother Anubis until the latter's death, after which Poemon served as sole abbot. Poemon was noted for his saintly demeanor, his wisdom, and his insistence upon frequent Communion.
