The Syriac Orthodox Patriarch of Antioch is the head of the Syriac Orthodox Church. The following is a list of primates who have held that office.

For Patriarchs of Antioch before the split in 518 between the Syriac and Eastern Orthodox churches, see List of Patriarchs of Antioch.

Syriac Orthodox Patriarchs of Antioch after 518

(Severus was deposed in 518 and exiled to Egypt, but was recognized as the lawful Patriarch by many Syriac Christians until his death in 538)
John was deposed but claimed the Patriarchate until 1091.


It should also be noted that a parallel autocephalic Patriarchate of Tur-Abdin existed from 1364 to 1869, as described in "Massacres, resistance, protectors" by David Gaunt, Jan Bet̲-Şawoce, Racho Donef (Gorgias Press).
