Notes on the sources

(Sources which are only quoted once or twice are introduced in the notes. )

Agathangelos. Name given to the author of an Armenian historical work covering the years 226-330. See below pp. 309-14.

Agathias. Greek historian, lawyer and poet. A native of Myrina in Asia Minor, he was the author of a continuation of the Procopius’ history, covering the years 552-68. Ed. R. Keydell, CFHB, 1967.

Ammianus Marcellinus. Latin historian but of Greek origin. A native of Antioch, he saw service on the eastern frontier on the staff of Ursicinus (Mag. Equ. 349-59 and Mag. Ped. 359-60). The surviving portion of his history which covers the years 353-78 is an essential source of eye-witness information on the later Persian wars of Constantius II and the expedition of Julian. Ed. W. Seyfarth, Berlin, 1968-71.

Artemii Passio. A fictionalized account of the life and martyrdom of Artemius (cf. PLRE, I, p. 112), a Christian official who was executed under Julian. The work was composed no earlier than the reign of Justinian. Its authorship is attributed in some manuscripts to a certain John of Rhodes and in others to John of Damascus (c. 675-c.749). Ed. B. Kotter, Die Schriften des Johannes von Damaskos, V, Berlin, 1988, pp. 185-245.

Athanasius. (c. 296-373) Bishop of Alexandria and foremost opponent of Arianism. His historical-cum-polemical works (in Greek) yield occasional pieces of valuable information on the eastern frontier, especially on the role of Constantius II. Ed. W. Bright, St Athanasius’s Historical Writings, Oxford, 1881.
