Dorotheus of Tyre

Dorotheus of Tyre supposed to have been bishop of Tyre about A.D. 300. He is said (not by contemporary writers, but by later martyrologists) to have suffered greatly in the persecutions under Dioclesian, and to have suffered martyrdom under Julian, A.D. 363. There is extant under his name a Synopsis de vita et morte Prophetarum, Apostolorum, et Discipulorum Domini (given in Biblioth. Max. Patrum, 3:421). "It is now generally allowed to be fabulous, and of little or no value." — Lardner, Works (10 volumes, 8vo), 3:161;

Fabricius, Bibl. Graeca (edition Harles), 7:452; Cave, Hist. Lit. (Geneva, 1720), 1:103; Oudin, Script. Ecclesiastes 1:1377.
