Was Titus a bishop in Crete or the appointer of bishops[edit]

Inasmuch as elder (presbyteros) and bishop (episkopos) are synonymous offices in the NT, and inasmuch as Titus was to appoint elders in Crete; should he not rather be called an appointer of bishops, rather than a bishop? Is there some contemporary source which calls Titus a bishop? Was he not more accurately called a missionary and an apostolic legate of Paul? The only contemporary source I know of for this is the Book of Titus, and data in a secondary source which is not supported by ancient contemporary sources (duly cited and footnoted) would not be a reliable secondary source.
