4. Joannes Psellus, a Byzantine writer, whose time is unknown, and to whom are ascribed three poems. Constantinus Psellus, and some other writers of the same name, scarcely deserve mention. Very little is known of them, and in the statements which are made respecting them they are perpetually confounded with the younger Mlichael Psellus. (See Fabric. Bibl. Graec.
vol. x. p. 97.)
