In the 4th century the bishop of this see was Florentius, against whom Pope Damasus was compelled to seek the assistance of the emperors. Bishop St. Theodorus died in 435; Julianus was pontifical legate to the Robber Council of Ephesus in 449. The Bishop Stephanus, whom Cappelletti names at this period, should be referred to the 7th century, or later.
