30. PATZO. Nicolaus Comnenus Papadopoli cites the exposition of the Novellae of the later Byzantine emperors, by Gregorius Patzo, who held the office of Logotheta Dromi (or Logotheta Cursus), and whom he regards as one of the most eminent of the jurists of the Byzantine empire, inferior to Harmenopulus alone.
The time at which Gregorius Patzo lived is not known, but he must have been later than Alexis I. Comnenus (A. D. 1081-1118), some of whose Novellae he has expounded. Assamanni would make him a modern Greek. (Fabric. Bibl. Gr.
