Χρυσορρόας - Χρυσόστομος
: You are right that he was not a bishop. However, the "of [place]" usage in English does not necessary refer only to episcopacy. There are multiple saints who were never bishops who are commonly known by such names, e.g., [[Columba of Iona]], [[Benedict of Nursia]], [[Anthony of the Kiev Caves]], [[Clement of Alexandria]], etc. &mdash;[[User:ASDamick|<font size="3.5" color="green" face="Adobe Garamond Pro, Garamond, Georgia, Times New Roman">Fr.

== Χρυσορρόας - Χρυσόστομος ==
I just want to remark that John of Damascus was known as Χρυσορρόας, Chrysorroas, which is not the same as Chrysostom (Χρυσόστομος). That's why I've done [ this reversion]. --[[User:Filius Rosadis|Filius Rosadis]] 01:52, September 13, 2007 (PDT)
