6. Of CONSTANTINOPLE, a writer of unknown date, who wrote Εἰς χαλκοῦν ὄφιν λόγοι δ̓́
. Photius, from whom alone we learn any thing of this writer, says that," so far as could be judged from this piece, he appeared to be orthodox." Probably he was the Hesychius, one of the clergy of Constantinople, who raised in that city the cry of heresy against Eunomius, apparently about A. D. 360. [EUNOMIUS.] Thorschmidius thinks that he was perhaps the author of the Ecclesiastical History, known by one or two citations, and generally regarded as a work of Hesychius of Jerusalem.
