St. Athanasius on Bishops and Hell

I am unable to confirm whether or not St. Athanasius said this or not, but having many millstone bishops in these United States this quotation struck a chord with me so here I am sharing with you all.
"The floor of hell is covered with the skulls of bishops." --St. Athanasius

I can't confirm whether the quote attributed to Saint Athanasius is true, but we should all pray for our bishops everyday as the Lord prayed for Saint Peter in Luke Chapter 22:
31 "Simon, Simon, behold, Satan demanded to have you, that he might sift you like wheat, 32 but I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail; and when you have turned again, strengthen your brethren."
I am sure a bishop is a great trophy for Satan. Let's pray that the floor of hell is already completely paved.

More often this quote is attributed to St John Chrysostom.
