nted with Aristotle and Plato. The vanity of a female philosopher was flattered with the homages she received from the Greek scholars and artists, and during a long period hers and her husband's house was the centre of the arts and sciences of Constantinople. Her love for her husband was sincere and founded upon real esteem, and she and the empress tried, although in vain, to persuade the dying Alexis to appoint Bryennius his successor. The throne was inherited by John, the son of Alexis. (A. D. 1118.) During his reign Anna persuaded Bryennius to seize the crown; but the conspiracy failed at the moment of its execution, and Anna and Bryennius were punished with exile and the confiscation of the greater part of their property. Bryennius died some time afterwards, and Anna regretted his loss with deep and sincere affliction. During her retirement from the world she composed her Alexias (*)Aleci/as). Works Alexias (*)Aleci/as) This celebrated work is a biography of her father, the em
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 Basilic

Euthy'mius Zigabe'nus a Greek monk of the convent of the Virgin Mary at Constantinople, lived about the beginning of the 12th century of our era, at the time of the emperor Alexius Comnenus, with whom he was connected by intimate friendship. In A. D. 1118, when the emperor died, Euthymius was still alive; and he himself says that he twice heard the emperor dispute against the enemies of the Greek church--that is, probably against the Latins. Respecting his life, see especially Anna Comnena (lib. xv.) and L. Allatius. (De Cosens. utr. Eccles. 2.10. 5.) Editions Euthymius was the author of several works, all of which are still extant in numerous MSS., but the following only have been printed: 1. *Panopli/a dogmatikh\ th=s o)rqodo/cou pi/stews directed against heretics of every class, was written by the command of Alexius Comnenus. It is divided into 28 titles, and its substance is taken chiefly from the early ecclesiastical fathers. Editions Latin Translations A Latin trans
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

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 have disu
Alexius Comnenus, annis septem et triginta, mensibus quatuor, diebus quatuordecim. Uxor ejus Irene. From this passage Kollar inferred that the history included the whole reign of Alexius, and that the author must have written after its close in A. D. 1118. But this inference, so far as it respects the close of the history, is contradicted by the title of the history itself, which describes it as teleutw=sa e)s th\n a)nago/reusin *)Aleci/ou tou= *Komnhnou=. In Alexii Commeni Coronatione desinens.ed editions and the known MSS. of the history do not complete the work, according to the description given in its title; and that the author filled the offices ascribed to him by Cedrenus and in the title of his own work. Whether he lived after A. D. 1118; whether he held his several offices successively or simultaneously, and if successively, in what order, is quite uncertain. The theory of a double edition of his work, and the succession of his offices deduced from that theory, rests, as we ha
