489 BATTLES BETWEEN THE GREEN AND THE BLUE (Antioch)

Factions of the "Orthodox" upper class (Blues) fought the “Monophysites” lower class (Greens). The Jews in general supported the ruling class blues, which resulted in many attacks by the Greens. In one incident, the synagogue in Daphne near Antioch was razed, a number of Jews killed , and bones were removed from the Jewish cemetery and burned. Emperor Zeno (474-491) commented, that the greens deserved punishment for not throwing live Jews into the flames.
