Remember Me in Your Prayers

Derwas J. Chitty (1901-1971), The Desert a City: An Introduction to the Study of Egyptian and Palestinian Monasticism under the Christian Empire (1966; rpt. Crestwood: St. Vladimir's Seminary Press, n.d.), p. 68, with note on p. 78:
Arsenius went for a time, it seems, to Canopus, where a senatorial lady from Rome, bearding him in his garden, was sent away broken by his answer to her request that he should remember her in his prayers: 'I pray God that he may wipe out the memory of thee from my heart'.47

47 G Arsen. 28.
Excerpt from the Greek (Patrologia Graeca 65, col. 96):
ἀλλ΄ εὔχου ὑπὲρ ἐμοῦ͵ καὶ μνημόνευέ μου διαπαντός. ὁ δὲ ἀποκριθεὶς εἶπεν αὐτῇ· εὔχομαι τῷ Θεῷ͵ ἵνα ἐξαλείψῃ τὸ μνημόσυνόν σου ἐκ τῆς καρδίας μου.
