Dear Powers that be;

I caught an error in the entry for Myra in the Yale Anchor Bible Dictionary today. I don't know from whence it came and if it can be fixed in the digital version, but anyway:

The most famous church is that of the legendary St. Nicholas at Myra. Nicholas was born at Patara ca. 300 b.c. and served as the bishop of Myra. Late sources, uncorroborated by contemporary evidence, allege that Nicholas was imprisoned during Diocletian’s persecution, that he was present at the Council of Nicaea in 325, and that he died ca. 350 (Anrich 1913 and 1917; Bean 1978: 125–26).

 

Clearly this should read A.D. or C.E.

This is a typographical error (typo) so you can right click the word/phrase, choose the Selection tab on right, select Report Typo on the left and insert the correct value (make a Comment if necessary). Then Submit it.  The report goes to Logos.
