- From: Vox Verax <james.snapp@...>Cyrillona? He was a Syriac writer in the late 300's. Five of his writings, along with a composition called "On the Grain of Wheat," are preserved in a MS that was produced in the 500's (B. L. Add. MS 14591).
William Wright wrote a profile of Cyrillona in "A Short History of Syriac Literature;" this includes a short extract from Cyrillona's poem about the Huns' invasion.It would have to be the VERY late 300's. The Huns invaded Armenia and Syria in 395.Daniel Buck
