Martyrdom of St Polycarp

N.B. - from the article on Pionius of Smyrna there is the following discussion about Pionius as author of the Martyrdom of Polycarp, which however appears to be a different document than the Epistle? :

St Pionius transcribed the "Martyrdom of St Polycarp" (Martyrium Polycarpi) from an older copy made by Isocrates (or Socrates) in Corinth. This document in turn was transcribed from an earlier manuscript written by Gaius, and was based on the recollections of St Irenaeus of Lyons, who knew Saint Polycarp.
Saint Polycarp appeared to Pionius in a vision, telling him to search for the text of Isocrates. Saint Pionius collected the material which was nearly worn out with age, thus preserving the account for later generations.
Eusebius claims to have received the "Martyrdom of Polycarp" through a letter addressed to the Church of Philomelium by the Church of Smyrna.
