He certainly took advantage and knew how to when he accepted no compromise as to its acceptance. And St Dioscorus, lamp of Orthodoxy, refused to read the tome in Ephesus 449, probably out of respect for his friend, Leo, whom he didn't want to embarrass with his theologically inept tome.
Leo used the term 'prospon' as the Nestorians have. Some Nestorians objected to the addition of "one hypostasis" but they accepted it when "hypostasis" was interpreted to them as equal to "prosopon". Nesotorius himself praised the tome saying something along the lines of it "vindicated me" (unsure of the exact quote).
We're indebted to our fathers Sts Athanasius, Cyril, Dioscorus, Timothy Aelurus, Philoxenus of Mabbug, Severus, and countless others who stood firm in the face of violence, ridicule and even martyrdom to preserve for us the Orthodox faith, pure & undefiled.
