Eutychian or Eutychianus was pope from January 4, 275 to December 7, 283 (according to the "Annuario Pontificio" of 2003). His original epitaph was discovered in the catacombs of Callixtus (see Kraus, Roma sotterranea, p. 154 et seq.), but almost nothing more is known of him. Even the date of his reign is uncertain.
