Dionysius bishop of Corinth, A.D. 170, of whom little now is known, appears to have been in considerable repute in the days of Eusebius, for eight epistles which he had written:

1, to the Lacedaemonians; 2, to the Athenians; 3, to the believers of Nicomedia, the capital of Bithynia; 4, to the Church at Gortyna, and the other churches of Crete; 5, to the Church in Amastris, together with those throughout Pontus; 6, to the Gnossians; 7, to the Romans; and 8; to Chrysophora, an eminent Christian matron.

These are all lost except a few fragments preserved by Eusebius; Hist. Eccl. 4:23, and 2:25. See extracts from these fragments in Lardner, Works (ed. Kippis), 2:144 sq. The Fragmenta are given in Gallandii Bibl. Patr.
