paragraph 18

Of the City of Constantinople

And at Constantinople is the body of St. Anne, Mary's mother, which was brought by Helena from Jerusalem, and in


that city is (the body of John) Chrysostom, who was bishop in that city (Constantinople), and in it are the relics of apostle Luke, which were brought thither out of Bithynia, and many other relics along with it. And in it are the vessels of marble which are called ‘hydria’, and they are always dropping water, and they fill of themselves every single year.
