The Pentarchy/Apostolic See


It seems our 5 sources where we get out apostolic succesion is from

Rome (Sts. Peter and Paul)
Constantinople (St. Andrew)
Alexandria (St. Mark)
Antioch (St. Peter)
Jerusalem (St. James)

Although St. Mark wasn;t considered an apostle as far as the 12, he was considered as far as the 70 commisioned by Peter and Paul.

My question is, are there people who have apostolic succesion who don’t know it? Maybe considering from the lines of the other Apostles that weren’t recorded during history? It would be interesting if acheology would find this. I mean there are 9 other apostles we have here where we have no recorded documents as to far as where their Sees are.
