THEODOSIUS III. cognomine Adramyttenus
in thronum invitus evectus est, A. C. 715. ab exercitu navali, contra Saracenos emisto, post Ducem occisum: Anastasiô II. qui Monachum se fecerat, nequiquam contra nitente. Interim Leo Isaurus, Nicomediae Imperatorem se proclamari curavit, cepitque filium Theodosii, qui transitu ipsum arcere conatus est. Constantinopolim hinc venienti, cessit sponte Theodosius, A. C. 717. seque ipsum cum filio Ephesi monasterio inclusit. Hinc iussit in Epitaphio scribi, Υ῾γίεια. Theophan. Zonar. Cedr. Viri Clari.
