From the homily about the town of Antioch. 2956

To Simon was allotted Rome, 2957 and to John Ephesus; to Thomas India, and to Addæus the country of the Assyrians. 2958   And, when they were sent each one of them to the district which had been allotted to him, they devoted themselves 2959 to bring the several countries to discipleship.



From Cod. Add. 14,590, of the eighth or ninth century.


[A note of the Middle Age.  The reverse is taught in the Scriptures, but even Hebrew Christians slurred the name of Paul.]


This is probably the correct reading:  the printed text means “among the Assyrians.”—Tr.


Lit. “set their faces.”—Tr.
