Leo'ntius

2. A jurist, was the father of a jurist named Patricius, and succeeded another Patricius. All the three were probably professors of law at Berytus. (Const. Δέδωκεν, § 9). From Cod. 1. tit. 17. s. 9, it appears that he preceded those distinguished ancestors of Anatolius, who "optimam sui memoriam in legibus reliquerunt," by which expression Justinian probably means to refer to useful commentaries on the Gregorian, Hermogenian, and Theodosian Codes. In the passage cited from the Code he is mentioned with the titles " virum gloriosissimum praefectorium consularem."
