Nicephorus, Chartophylax an Eastern monastic, is supposed to have flourished some time about the close of the 8th or the beginning of the 9th century. Fabricius thinks he is the same as Nicephorus Diaconus et Chartophylax, who was present at the second Council of Nicaea, and was afterwards raised to the patriarchate; if so, however, he would be identical with Nicephorus, the famous author of the Breviarium, who was made patriarch in 806. He wrote, Solutionurn Epistolae I. ad Theodosium nmonachum, Greece et Latine, in Leunclavis, Jus Graeco-Romanum, also in the twelfth vol. of Biblioth. Patr. Maxim.,
and in the Orthodoxographi. See Cave, Hist. Lit. ad ann. 801; Fabricius, Bibl. Garc. 7:608, 674.
