Greek Original:
Ἰγνάτιος, διάκονος καὶ σκευοφύλαξ τῆς μεγάλης ἐκκλησίας Κωνσταντινουπόλεως καὶ γεγονὼς μητροπολίτης Νικαίας, γραμματικός. ἔγραψε βίους Ταρασίου καὶ Νικηφόρου τῶν ἁγίων καὶ μακαρίων πατριαρχῶν: ἐπιτυμβίους ἐλέγους: ἐπιστολάς: ἰάμβους εἰς Θωμᾶν τὸν Ἀντάρτην, ἅπερ ὀνομάζουσι τὰ κατὰ Θωμᾶν: καὶ ἄλλα.
Notes:
RE Ignatios(2).
[1] Hagia Sophia.
[2] Tarasius (patriarch 784-806) and Nicephorus (patriarch 806-815) were opponents of the iconoclasts: see Catholic Encyclopedia entries at web addresses 1 & 2.
[3] Thomas the Slav began his attempt to make himself emperor in 820/1. On this title, where the preposition eis does need to be construed as 'against', see Barry Baldwin, "Book Titles in the Suda", Journal of Hellenic Studies 103 (1983) 136-7, at 136 (adding for good measure the comment that, pace Adler, this material cannot possibly come from Hesychius of Miletus).
