?-circa 910


Metrophanes was Bi­shop of Smyr­na (now Iz­mir, Tur­key) near the end of the 9th Cen­tu­ry.

He was a par­ti­san of Rome in her con­test with Pho­ti­us, and ad­her­ent of his ri­val, Ig­na­ti­us.

His chief hym­no­lo­gi­cal works were his Can­ons in ho­nor of the Tri­ni­ty, eight in all, one for each Tone.
