47. SYRACUSANUS. Some of the hymns in the Menaea, or services for the saints' days in the Greek church, are ascribed to George, who was bishop of Syracuse about A. D. 663, and who is said to have studied Greek literature at Constantinople, and to have become an accomplished scholar. He wrote also Troparia, or hymns for the feasts of the Nativity and the Epiphany. (Fabric. Bibl. Gr. vol. x. p. 629.)
