Christo'phorus, Patri'cius

a native of Mytilene, whose time is unknown, wrote in Iambic verse a Menologium, or history of the saints, arranged according to the saints' days in each month. The MS. was formerly in the Palatine Library, but is now in the Vatican, Cod. 383, No. 7. There are also MISS. of the whole or part of the work at Venice, Moscow, and Paris. It is cited more than once in the Glossarium of Meursius. (Cave, Hist. Litt. vol. ii. Diss. pp. 5, 6; Fabric. Bibl. Graec. xi. p. 594.)
