Archbishop Leontios of Cyprus
Leontios (3 March 1896 – 26 July 1947) was Archbishop of Cyprus for only 36 days in 1947. He was born in Limassol. Prior to his election as archbishop of Cyprus he served as bishop of Paphos district.
He was elected archbishop on 20 June 1947.
The Archbishop died of typhus following a long period of diabetes, and consequently it was not possible for the body to lie in state for several days for public homage, as is customary. The funeral took place 27 July 1947 at the Greek cemetery at Nicosia
