Arius wrote five sophisms about Jesus which were appended to the earliest Nicene Creeds (as the anathema clause):

Arius claimed that "There was time when Jesus was not"
He claimed that "Before Jesus was born Jesus was not"
He claimed that "Jesus was made out of nothing existing"
He claimed that "Jesus is/was from another subsistence/substance"
He claimed that "Jesus is subject to alteration or change"

It would appear to me that Arius is claiming that Jesus was fictional.
"It is, I think, expedient to set forth to all mankind the reasons by which I was convinced that
the fabrication of the Christians is a fiction of men composed by wickedness. "

Arius was not claiming Jesus was fictional . He taught that Jesus did not exist until he was begotten of God which contradicts the teaching that Jesus was from the beginning and God Creator
