- David Potter
ExtractChristian apologist from Athens and author of two extant works, The Resurrection of the Dead, and the Legatio. The latter is a defence of Christianity composed in the form of a letter to the emperors Marcus *Aurelius and *Commodus. This work is an extremely important, early assertion of Christian propriety against commonplace charges that Christians were atheists and cannibals (see atheism; cannibalism).
