Aristion

Papias reports that Aristion along with John the Elder was a primary witness for the early tradition about Christ. Nothing further is known for certain of him, but in an Armenian MS of the gospels dated 986, discovered by F.C. Conybeare in 1891, Mark 16:9-20 is attributed to the “Elder Ariston.” This may be an authentic tradition, but further proof is lacking. Aristion must be distinguished from [[Aristo of Pella]].
