I was just curious.  According the the historical minutes of Chalcedon 451 A.D., what exactly were the crimes that the council found guilty of Pope Dioscorus, 27th Pope of Alexandria?  According to one source I'm reading, it says the Roman delegation had initially accused our blessed Pope of certain crimes, such as the restriction of wheat and corn from Egypt to the rest of the empire (as the Arians had once accused Pope Athanasius the Great).  I know the Oriental Orthodox viewpoint on this matter, but curious as to the official stance of the Eastern Orthodox on this particular matter concerning Pope Dioscorus.
