Leontios of Neapolis

Leontios was Bishop of Neapolis (Limassol) in Cyprus in the 7th century A.D. Works: Life of St. John the Merciful, commissioned by the archbishop of Constantia Arcadius, Life of Symeon the holy fool,a lost "Life of Spyridon" and an apologia against Jews. His works are considered among the few works giving any insight into the vernacular Greek of Early and Middle Byzantium.

He was probably present at the Lateran council in Rome in 649.
