p. 581 Memorandum.—On other Letters ascribed to Athanasius.
(1.) Fragment of a letter to Eupsychius; probably the Nicene Father referred to Ep. Æg. 8, (cf. D.C.B. ii. 299 (4)). The Greek is given by Montf. in Ath. Opp. 1. p. 1293 (Latin, ib. p. 1287). It was cited in Conc. Nic. II. Act vi., but although it has affinities with Orat. ii. 8 (high-priestly dress), it has the appearance of a polemical argument against Monophysitism. (Migne xxvi. 1245.)
(3.) Fragments of an Epistola ad Antiochenos (not our Tomus, supr., p. 483): also a polemic against Monophysitism, and almost Nestorian in doctrine: Jesus Christus…non est Ipse [i.e. ante sæcula et in sæcula, Heb. xiii. 8], and duas personas asserted of Christ. From Facundus, who says the letter was written against the Apollinarians, and who gives it on the authority of Peter, Ath.s successor (Migne xxvi. 1259).
(5.) Spurious letters (in Migne xxviii.) to Jovian, to Castor (2), to a bishop of the Persians, and to and from popes Liberius, Marcus, Julius and Felix (made up out of late and spurious decretals, &c., &c.).
