bishop of Corinth, A.D. 170, of whom little now is known, appears to have been in considerable repute in the days of Eusebius, for eight epistles which he had written:

1, to the Lacedaemonians;

2, to the Athenians;

3, to the believers of Nicomedia, the capital of Bithynia;

4, to the Church at Gortyna, and the other churches of Crete;

5, to the Church in Amastris, together with those throughout Pontus;

6, to the Gnossians;

7, to the Romans

8; to Chrysophora, an eminent Christian matron.

These are all lost except a few fragments preserved by Eusebius; Hist. Eccl. 4:23, and 2:25. See extracts from these fragments in Lardner, Works (ed. Kippis), 2:144 sq. The Fragmenta are given in Gallandii Bibl. Patr. 1:675, and in Routh, Reliquiae Sacrae (Oxon. 1814), 1:163 sq. See Fabricius, Bibliotheca Graeca, 4:408; 12:175 (ed. Harles); Ceillier, Hist. Gin. d. auteurs sacres (Paris, 1865), 1:461.
