Leo Stypiuta or STYPPA, or STYPA

(Στύπης ), patriarch of Constantinople in the 12th century (A.D. 1134 to 1143), flourished until about the time of the accession of the Byzantine emperor Manuel Comnenus. A decree of Leo Stypiota on the lawfulness of certain marriages is given in the Jus Orientale of Bonefidus (θεσμοὶ Ἀρχιερατικοί, Sanction. Pontific. p. 59), and in the Jus Graeco-Romanum of Leunclavius (liber 3, vol. 1, p. 217). He is often cited by Nicolaus Comnenus Popadopoli. See Fabricius, Bibl. Graec. 8:721; 11:666. Smith, Dict. Greek and Roman Biog. 2:745.
