Panaretos, Michael

   His chronicle (q.v.), covering the years 1204-1390, is the principal source for the history of the Empire of Trebizond (q.v.). His long service to Alexios III Komnenos included participation in the emperor's (q.v.) military expeditions and acquisition of direct knowledge of the major political and ecclesiastical events at court for the years after 1340, the period for which the chronicle is most useful.
