Megabyzus seems to have a remarkable resemblence to Narses! Or at least both of them were reportedly devoid of genitals or at the very least, nutless! But, in the same vein, they were both generals of a great army! Certainly the powers of euneuchs seemed to occur at certain intervals in history, with the most obvious being during the Ottoman / Othoman period.
Merry X-Mass! Note that X is the first letter in the name of Jesus in Greek!
