68 by Pseudo-Dionysios: the other references were valueless as
independent testimony, for they were all derived from the
Pseudo-Dionysian .writings. Halioix had no knowledge whatever
of any Book of Hierotheos, or of a possible connection be¬
tween Pseudo-Hierotheos and Bar Sudaili, but believed im¬
plicitly in the existence of a first century writer. Researches
among Greek and Latin MSS. were also of no avail. I found,
however, that there still existed at the British Museum a
unique MS. of the book of Hierotheos in Syriac. It was
described, but erroneously, in Rosen and Forshall’s catalogue
as translated and commentated by Theodosios Patriarch of
Antioch, the second alone being the case. This work I was
enabled to copy.
