1. EPHREMUS. To a writer so called, and to whose name no distinctive epithet can be attached, is ascribed the account of Saints Abram and Mary (Acta SS. Abramii et Mariac
) in the Acta Sanctorum Martii,
vol. ii. p. 436, &c. Papebroche, in his introduction to the account, conjectures that the writer lived about the middle of the sixth century.
The account, of which he is the author, is sometimes ascribed (as in the Catalogue of the King's Library at Paris A. D. 1740) but incorrectly to Ephraem the Syrian.
It has also been ascribed, but incorrectly, to Ephrem of Caria and Ephrem of Mylasa. [Nos. 3 and 7 below.]
