[68] Leo Sap., Ordo patr. 1030 (ed. Parthey, p. 93) List of bishoprics in Arabia from the end of the ninth century, based on the list of Georgius Cyprius. - - - -
[69] Not. Antioch. C (ed. Gelzer, BZ 1 [1892], p. 248) List of the bishops of the patriarchate of Antioch, apparently from the early twelfth century, from MS Vat. Gr. 1455. In the MS, the metropolitan of Bostra is listed twice: first among the suffragans of the patriarch of Antioch, and again among the suffragans of the patriarch of Jerusalem, each time with a different list of bishops. Here follows the first list, from f. 243, ll. 58–77. - - - -
[70] Not. Antioch. C (ed. Gelzer, BZ 1 [1892], pp. 251–253) On f. 245–246 of the same MS, the see of Bostra appears a second time, this time among the suffragans of the patriarch of Jerusalem. The list of bishops differs in several details from the former. - - - -
[71] Not. Antioch. (ed. Nau, ROC 14 [1909], pp. 215–216) A MS of the thirteenth century, Paris. suppl. Graec. 1226, purportedly copied from a document composed under Anastasius, patriarch of Antioch, in 570, but in fact updated in the tenth century, lists the suffragans of the four eastern patriarchates: Constantinople, Antioch, Alexandria and Jerusalem. Here too the metropolitan of Bostra appears twice: once under Antioch, and again under Jerusalem. The list of suffragans of Antioch is slightly different from that of MS Vat. Gr. 1455 (above, [265]): Bostra is the sixth of twelve thrones (rather than thirteen) and has under it twenty bishoprics (rather than nineteen). - - - -
[72] Not. Antioch. (ed. Honigmann, BZ 25 [1925], p. 74) A reconstruction of the list of metropolitans and bishops in the patriarchate of Antioch, made by Honigmann on the basis of late lists like those published by Gelzer and Nau; the list as reconstructed is supposed to reflect the situation in the sixth century. - - - -
