ius Autorianus (*)Arse/nios). 1. Of Constantinople, surnamed Autorianus, lived about the middle of the thirteenth century. He was educated in some monastery in Nicaea, of which he afterwards became the head. After he had held this office for some time, he led a private and ascetic life; and he appears to have passed some time also in one of the monasteries on mount Athos. At length, about A. D. 1255, the emperor Theodorus Lascaris the Younger raised him to the dignity of patriarch. In A.

His short reign presents nothing worthy of record. He died in August, 1259, in the 36th or 37th year of his age, and was succeeded by his son Joannes Lascaris.
