Note by the American Editor.

In Bower’s History of the Popes (ed. Philadelphia, 1847), vol. i. p. 22, may be seen an interesting note on the “Pontifical” of Bucherius, under the name of Pontianus.  It was this bishop who is said to have condemned Origen.  He probably shared the fate of Hippolytus in exile, and was martyred under Maximin the Thracian.
