Theodo'sius MELITINUS

7. MELITINUS, a Byzantine historian.


A MS. copy of his Chronicon was brought from Constantinople to Tübingen by Stephen Gerlach.


A fragment of this, respecting the marriage of the emperor Theophilus with Theodora of Paphlagonia, in A. D. 830, was appended to the epitome of the Aethiopica of Heliodorus, published by Martin Crusius at Frankfort, 1584. The entire work has never been printed. There is also a MS. in the royal library at Munich.
