Is Rabbula officially recognized as a Saint in any of the OO churches?

I don't see him on the Armenian calendar.

Reading a quote from Fr. Tadros Malaty, it seems that he's not venerated in the Coptic Church either:

[Tatian's] chief claim to fame is the "Diatessaron," a history of the life of Christ compiled from the four gospels which was used in the Syriac Church until the 5th century, when Rabbula of Edessa perhaps replaced it by the Peshitta version because its author was considered a heretic. Among his literary opponents were St. Irenaeus, Tertullian, St. Clement of Alexandria, St. Hippolytus and Origen. It is possible that his memory in the Syriac Church is preserved under the name of Addai. Eusebius tells us that Tatian left a multitude of writings, but most of these are unknown.
Vain existence can never exist, for "unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.

I'm holding out for a Syrian answer, as I'm guessing it might be possible that he be only on their calendar, if any.
