lus (if Zachariae expresses what he intends) who, in Bas. i. p. 789 (ed. Heimbach), cites Stephanus, his contemporary and brother-commentator. We do not agree with Zachariae in this hypothesis of two Cyrilli; and it is to be observed, that in Bas. i. p. 646 (ed. Heimbach) the supposed earlier Cyrillus of Zachariae is treated as the author of a commentary on the title de Pactis.) In Bas. iii. pp. 50, 51 (ed. Fabrot.), Cyrillus is represented as quoting a constitution of Alexius Comnenus (A. D. 1081-1118), and, in Bas. v. p. 431 and vii. p. 89, mention is made of the edition of Cyrillus, which is supposed by Assemani and Pohl to mean his edition of the Basilica. Hence Assemani (Bibl. Jur. Orient. 2.20, p. 404) comes to the conclusion, that Cyrillus was posterior to Alexius; and Pohl (ad Suares. Notit. Basil. p. 69, n. s) thinks, that there were two jurists of the name, one of whom was posterior to Alexius. In the passages of early jurists which are appended as notes to the text of the

Geor'gius MANGANES 14. MANGANES or MANCANES (*Magga/nhs or *Magka/nhs), was one of the secretaries of Alexis I. [ALEXISH or ALEXIUS I. COMNENUS], when he besieged Constantinople (A. D. 1081), in his struggle to wrest the crown from his predecessor, the emperor Nicephorus III. Botaniates. He was a crafty far-seeing man, apt at finding excuses for the delay of anything which the interest of his master required to be deferred. Anna Comnena forced from his name a verb (magganeu/esqai or magkaneu/esqai) denoting " to find excuses ;" and a noun (magga/nenma) denoting " a pretext." (Anna Comn. Alex. 2.8, 10. pp. 116-122, ed. Bonn.)
Grego'rius 13. CHIONIADES lived in the reign of Alexius I. Comnenus (A. D. 1081-1118.) There are extant in MS. in the Imperial Library at Vienna sixteen letters of Gregory Chioniades, addressed, some to the emperor, others to the patriarch or nobles of Constantinople, the publication of which is desirable from the light which it is supposed they would throw on that period of Byzantine history. (Fabric. Bibl. Gr. vol. xi. p. 631; Cave, Hist. Litt. vol. ii. p. 164.)
Grego'rius 30. PATZO. Nicolaus Comnenus Papadopoli cites the exposition of the Novellae of the later Byzantine emperors, by Gregorius Patzo, who held the office of Logotheta Dromi (or Logotheta Cursus), and whom he regards as one of the most eminent of the jurists of the Byzantine empire, inferior to Harmenopulus alone. The time at which Gregorius Patzo lived is not known, but he must have been later than Alexis I. Comnenus (A. D. 1081-1118), some of whose Novellae he has expounded. Assamanni would make him a modern Greek. (Fabric. Bibl. Gr. vol. xi. p. 632.)
Jaco'bus 4. A monk of the monastery of COCCINOBAPHUS, about the time of the emperor Alexius Comnenus (A. D. 1081-1118). He was a man of great learning and an elegant writer. Several of his homilies are extant in MS., and one of them, In Nativitatem B. Mariae, is given both in the original Greek and in a Latin version, in the Auctarium Novum of Combéfis, vol. i. p. 1583. Allatius ascribes this homily, but with hesitation, to another Jacobus, archbishop of Bulgaria, who lived about the middle of the 13th century. (Fabric. Bibl. Graec. vol. x. pp. 277, 278, 279, 282, 318, vol. xi. p. 637; Cave, Hist. Litt. vol. ii. p. 186.

Joannes ITALUS 78. ITALUS (*)Italo\s), philosopher and heresiarch in the reign of Alexis or Alexius I. Comnenus (A. D. 1081-1118) and his predecessors, derived his name from the country of his birth, Italy. He was the son of an Italian, who engaged as an auxiliary in an attempt of the Sicilians to withdraw from their subjection to the Byzantine emperor, and took with him his son, then a child, who thus spent his early years, not in the schools, but the camp. When the Byzantine commander, George Maniaces, revolted against Constantine X. [GEORGIUS, Historical, No. 15], A. D. 1042, the father of Italus fled back to Italy with his son, who after a time found his way to Constantinople. He had already made some attainments, especially in logic. At Constantinople he pursued his studies under several teachers, and last under Michael Psellus the younger; with whom, however, he soon quarrelled, not being able, according to Anna Comnena, to enter into the subtleties of his philosophy, and being
Leo 11. Of CHALCEDON. Works Record of a Synod on the Worship of Images Fabricius (Bibl. Graec. vol. xi. p. 665), inaccurately states that a synodical letter of Leo, who was archbishop of Chalcedon in the time of Alexius I. Comnenus (A. D. 1081-1118), was published by Montfaucon. (Biblioth. Coislin. Catalog. p. 103, &c.) The document, as Fabricius elsewhere more accurately describes it (Bibl. Graec. vol. 7.716), is the record of a synod held to determine some questions relating to the worship of images, on which Leo in a letter (which Montfaucon does not give) had used some heterodox languag

Nice'phorus Iii. Botania'tes (o( *Botania/ths,) emperor of Constantinople A. D. 1078-1081. He belonged to an illustrious family which boasted of a descent from the Fabii of Rome. He was looked upon as a brave general, but his military skill was the only quality that recommended him. It is related in the life of the emperor Michael VII. Parapinaces, how Michael lost his throne in consequence of the contemporaneous rebellion of Bryennius and Botaniates, the subject of this article, and that the latter succeeded Michael on the throne. Botaniates was crowned on the 25th of AMarch, 1078, and soon afterwards married Maria, the wife of Michael, from whom she became divorced by the deposed emperor taking holy orders. Before Nicephorus could enjoy his crown he had to defend it against Bryennius, whom he routed and made a prisoner in the bloody battle of Salabrya. Bryennius met the fate of most of the unfortunate rebels: he had his eves put out, and was finally assassinated. Nicephorus made him
Palaeo'logus 1. NICEPHORUS PALAEOLOGUS, with the title of Hypertimus, was a faithful servant of the emperor Nicephorus III. Botaniates (A. D. 1078-1031), and was rewarded by him with the government of Mesopotamia. He perished in battle in the reign of his successor Alexius I. Comnenus, while defending Dyrrhachium (Durazzo) against the Normans, A. D. 1081.

, by an error of the copyist, CORITHUS (*Kori/qou, in Gen.) and CORUTUS (*Koru/tou, in Gen.), or CORYTUS, a Greek writer on grammar of uncertain date. The only clue that we have to the period in which he lived is a passage in an unpublished work of his, De Constructione Orationis, in which he describes Georgius Pisida [GEORGIUS,, No. 44], Nicolaus Callicles, and Theodorus Prodromus as "more recent writers of Iambic verse."Nicolaus and Theodorus belong to the reign of Alexius I. Comnenus (A. D. 1081-1118), and therefore Pardus must belong to a still later period; but his vague use of the term "more recent," as applied to writers of such different periods as the seventh and eleventh or twelfth centuries, precludes us from determining how near to the reign of Alexius he is to be placed. It was long supposed that Corinthus was his name; but Allatius, in his Diatriba de Georgiis, pointed out that Pardus was his name and Corinthus that of his see; on his occupation of which he appears to h
