After Paulinus' death in 388, the Eustathians still resented Flavian for his relation to the hated
Meletius, accused of being consecrated by
Arians. So they elected Evagrius.
 According to
Sozomen, he didn't last long.
Theodoret, the consecration of Evagrius by Paulinus was against
canon law, because he did it alone, in his death bed. Nonetheless, he was accepted by the emperor and thus the schism persisted.
