Theodo'rus

9. Of ANCYRA. Fabricius in two places (Bibl. Graec. vol. viii. p. 696, x. p. 359) mentions a Theodore of Ancyra, as being cited in the Catenae of the Fathers on the Acts of the Apostles and the Catholic Epistles : but the similarity of the names leads us to suspect that the author cited is Theodotus, who was bishop of Ancyra in the first half of the fifth century. The names Theodotus and Theodorus are in MSS. frequently confounded (comp. Fabric. Bibl. Graec. vol. x. p. 512). Dr. J. A. Cramer, in the Catena in Acta SS. Apostolorum, edited under his care (8vo. Oxford, 1838), has substituted (pp. 33, 227, 427, 438) the name of Theodotus where the MSS. have that of " Theodore of Ancyra." or " Theodore the Monk," or " Theodore the Monk and Presbyter."
