4. EPHRAIM (Ἐφραὶμ), bishop of Cherson. In the title of his only published work he is called archbishop, and some moderns style him " martyr."


account of a miracle wrought by the relics of Clement of Rome

He is the author of an account of a miracle wrought by the relics or the interposition of Clement of Rome, on the body of a child, who had been overwhelmed by the sea in a pilgrimage to Clement's submarine tomb.


The account is printed in the Patres Apostolici of Cotelerius (vol. i. p. 815. ed. Amsterdam, 1724,) and in the De Probatis Sanctorum Vitis, of Surius, 29 Nov.

On the Miracles of St. Clement

Another piece of Ephraim on the Miracles of St. Clement, evidently different from the foregoing, is noticed by Leo Allatius, who calls the writer Ephraemius ; but Cotelerius was not able to obtain it, or he would have printed it with the foregoing.
