The Chronicle was written in Syriac in the second half of the 6th century by an author designated here as Pseudo-Zachariah Rhetor. It draws heavily on the Historia ecclesiastica of Zacharias, Bishop of Mytilene, with whom the Chronicle's author became conflated./ Includes bibliographical references (p. -523) and indexes.
