For the Admiral under Roger II of Sicily, and founder of the Greek Orthodox Martorana Church on Sicily in the 12th century, see George of Antioch.

Patriarch George of Antioch was the Patriarch of Antioch, and head of the Syriac Orthodox Church (758 - 790). He was one of the attendees of the Second Council of Nicaea in 787. Like many monks at the time, he was an opponent of iconoclasm. He was banished by Byzantine Emperor Leo V the Armenian and subsequently died in exile in 814.
