Two Fish Five Loaves

There were two fish and five loaves. Is Jesus the fish two natures? Are the five main churches the loaves (Constantinople, Rome, Jerusalem, Antioch, Alexandria)?

LOL. No.

The order in the dyptichs is Rome, Constantinople, Alexandria, Antioch, Jerusalem. Or would be, if Rome would come out of heresy.

By the time Constantinople's and Jerusalem's places were secure, there was also the Church of Cyprus, and by the time the Pentarchy was articulated in the canons and nomocanon, there was also the Church of Georgia and the Church of Armenia.

And if it was the five loaves, we should be running to the Vatican, not the Phanar.
