Similarly also the Bithynian bishop Theognius to the bishop of Alexandria:
Therefore we say the Son is begotten, and the Son was never able to have been unbegotten. Since we know from the Holy Scriptures that the Father alone is unbegotten, <we worship him alone>; but we venerate the Son, because among us it is certain that this glory of his ascends to the Father.
And a bit further on, the same person writes:
And since he shows that the Father is greater than himself, it is certain that <the Father is God>, not only because of the creation, but because he is unbegotten.
