Commentary

Parion (modern Kemer on the Hellespont) was initially a suffragan bishopric of Kyzikos represented at the Council of Nicaea in 325). By 640 it was an archbishopric and appears as such in all notitiae until the thirteenth century. Before 1261 it was united with the metropolis of Pegai. See Laurent, Corpus V/1, 641.
