bishop of Salona in Dalmatia, who flourished about the beginning of the fifth century, maintained a friendly intercourse with St. Augustin and St. Chrysostom, as we gather from their works; a letter has been preserved addressed to him by Pope Zosimus in A. D. 418.
The only epistle written by Hesychius himself now extant will be found among the correspondence of St. Augustin, and is numbered CXCVIII. in the Benedictine edition.
