Leontios Makhairas

Leontios Makhairas (greek: Λεόντιος Μαχαιράς) was a medieval Cypriot historian. The main source of information on him is his chronicle, written in the medieval cypriot dialect . The chronicle documents events from the visit of saint Helena in Cyprus to the times of the kingdom of Cyprus.

There are manuscripts of the Chronicle at the Bodleian Library in Oxford and the Marcian library in Venice. The chronicle was published by Konstantinos Sathas as part of his "medieval library" at the end of the 19th century and published again by Richard M. Dawkins with an English translation as "Recital Concerning the Sweet Land of Cyprus Entitled Chronicle."
