Term endedbetween 805 and 811
Personal details
Diedbetween 805 and 811

Wihthun[a] (died circa 808) was an early medieval Bishop of Selsey.


Wihthun seems to have been appointed bishop in 789, as he appears last among the bishops in the witness list of a charter issued by Osfrith, King of Mercia, to Wærmund, Bishop of Rochester in that year.

Wihthun's last datable subscriptions are to two charters of 805: a grant by Cuthred, King of Kent, to Archbishop Wulfred,[1] and a grant by Coenwulf, King of Mercia, and Cuthred, King of Kent, to a priest called Wulfhard.[2] He also witnessed a grant from between 805 and 807 by Cuthred, King of Kent, to Æthelnoth, praefectus.[1]

Wihthun died sometime after 805 and before 811.[3]
