Leontios of Neapolis
Leontios (Greek: Λεόντιος Νεαπόλεως) was Bishop of Neapolis (Limassol) in Cyprus in the 7th century AD. Works: Life of St. John the Merciful, commissioned by the archbishop of Constantia Arcadius, Life of Simeon the Holy Fool, a lost "Life of Spyridon" and an apologia against Jews. His works are considered among the few works giving any insight into the vernacular Greek of Early and Middle Byzantium.
