* Published by Encyclopedia Press, 1913.


Lete, a titular see of Macedonia, known by its coins and inscriptions, mentioned in Ptolemy (III, xiii), the younger Pliny IV, x, 17, Harpocration, Stephanus Byzantius, and Suidas, and in the Middle Ages in Nicephorus Bryennius (IV, xix). The spelling "Lite" is incorrect and comes from iotacism. Lete appears in some "Notitiae episcopatuum" of a late period as suffragan of Thessalonica, later united to the See of Renting. Lete and Rentina even had Greek bishops until the eighteenth century. Lete is today the small village of Aivati (1000 inhabitants) situated a little north of Salonica.

"That is our desire, to be tortured for Our Lord, Jesus Christ, and so to be saved, for that will give us salvation and firm confidence at the more terrible universal tribunal of Our Lord and Savior."
-- Justin Martyr, apologist, Saint; to the Prefect Rusticus after the prefect had threatened Justin with "torture without mercy;" from the trial transcript by Tatian (A.D. 165).
