Eutychianus, Bishop of Rome

Eutychianus (3) , bp. of Rome from Jan. 275 to Dec. 283, during a period of 8 years, 11 months and 3 days, and buried in the cemetery of Callistus. The truth of the record in the Liberian Catalogue has been confirmed by the discovery by De Rossi (Rom. Sot. ii. 70), in the papal crypt of the cemetery, of fragments of a slab inscribed ΕΥΤΥΧΙΑΝΟC ΕΠΙC (Eutychianus episcopus). Ten decreta appear as his in the collections of Gratian, Ivo, and others.
