I. Saint, an Egyptian bishop, born about the middle of the 3d century, died in Alexandria in 311. He published an edition of the New Testament mentioned by St. Jerome, as well as a revised edition of the Septuagint, both of which were in general use throughout Egypt and the neighboring countries. He suffered martyrdom in the persecution begun by Diocletian, shortly before its termination. II. Of Alexandria, a Greek lexicographer, born in Alexandria about 350. His personal history is unknown. He left a lexicon considered to be of inestimable value. Some critics say that this work is based on a lexicon composed in the 1st century by Pamphilus of Alexandria, and abridged later by Diogenianus. One manuscript of the work exists in St. Mark's library at Venice; and according to Kopitar Hesychii Glossographi Discipulus Russus, Vienna, 1839), inedited manuscripts of St. Cyril of Alexandria in several European libraries reproduce the work of Hesychius. The first edition was that of Musurus (Venice, 1514); the best is that of Johann Alberti and David Ruhnken (Leyden, 1746-1766; reedited by Schmidt, 4 vols. 4to, Jena, 1857-64). III. Of Jerusalem, a Greek ecclesiastical writer, born in Jerusalem, died in Constantinople about 434. He was educated in his native city, and ordained priest in Constantinople, where he spent the remainder of his life.

His complete works are published in vol. xciii. of Migne's Patrologie grecque. Among his lost works is a church history. IV. Of Miletus, called the Illustrious, a Greek historian, born at Miletus in Ionia about 470, died about 530. Very little is known of his life. His only ex-isting work is one on celebrated teachers, Hesychius 0800473Hesychius 0800474 (Antwerp, 1572, with a translation by Hadrianus Junius). Meursius in his Hesychii Opuscula (Leyden, 1613; Leip-sic, 1820) published a fragment, Hesychius 0800475Hesychius 0800476 believed to be the 6th book of a universal history from Belus to the end of the reign of Anastasius I., 518.
