35. Of CITRUS (now Kitro or Kidros), in Macedonia, the ancient Pydna. Joannes was bishop of Citrus about A. D. 1200.
He wrote Ἀποκρίεσις πρὸς Κωνσταντῖνον Ἀρχιεπίσκοπον Δ̓υρραχίου τὸν Καβάσιλαν
. Response ad Constantinum Cabasilum, Archiepiscopum Dyrrachii,
of which sixteen answers, with the questions prefixed, are given with a Latin version in the Jus Graeco-Romanum
of Leunclavius (fol. Frankfort, 1596), lib. v. p. 323.
A larger portion of the Responsa
is given in the Synopsis Juris Graeci
of Thomas Diplouaticitus (Diplovatizio). Several MSS. of the Responsa
contain twenty-four answers, others thirty-two; and Nic. Comnenus Papadopoli, citing the work in his Praenotiones Mystagogicae,
speaks of a hundred.
In one MS. Joannes of Citrus has the surname of Dalassinus. Allatius, in his De Consensu,
and Contra Hottingerum,
quotes a work of Joannes of Citrus, De Consuetudinibus et Dogmatibus Latinorum.
