Heraclia'nus (*(Hrakleiano/s), a physician of Alexandria, under whom Galen studied anatomy, about A. D. 156. (Galen, Comment. in Hiippocr. "De Nat. Hom." 2.6, vol. xv. p. 136.) [W.A.
Lu'cius 3. Of BRITAIN. Bede in his Historia Ecclesiastica, 1.4, states that in A. D. 156, in the reign of the Roman emperors Aurelius and Verus, and in the pontificate of Pope Eleutherius, Lucius, a British king, sent a letter to the Pope, praying for his assistance that he might be made a Christian; and having obtained his request, was with his people instructed in the Christian faith, which they preserved perfect and uncorrupted, and in peace, till the reign of Diocletian. A statement similar to this is given by Bede in his Chronicon s. de Sex Aetatibus, and by Ado of Vienne, in his Chronicon.

E. 5.27), gives the name in the same form; but it is probably incorrect. There was a Maximus bishop of Jerusalem in the reign of Antoninus Pius or Marcus Aurelius, or the earlier part of that of Commodus, i.e. somewhere between A. D. 156 and A. D. 185, and probably in the early part of that interval: another Maximus occupied the same see from A. D. 185; and the successive episcopates of himself and seven successors occupy about eighty years, the length of each separate episcopate not being known. The date therefore of this latter Maximus of Jerusalem accords sufficiently with the notice in Jerome respecting the writer; but it is remarkable that though both Eusebius and Jerome mention the bishop (Eusebius, Chronic. and Hier
