66 kat' ousian anomoion is the right correction of Valesius.

67 A mistake for Constantius.

68 Athan. Apol. cont. Arian. 51-56; Hist. Arian. 15, 16; Ruf. i. 19; Soc. ii. 22, 23, who gives texts from Athanasius of the second letter of Constans (in part); those of Constantius to Athanasius; and Julius to the Alexandrians. Philost. iii. 13.

69 Here he uses Athan. Historia Arian. 28; Apol. de fuga sua, 26. Theodoret, too, in his sketch of Leontius, H. E. ii. 24, quotes briefly from Athan. Cf. Philost. iii. 13.

70 Athan. Apol. cont. Arian. 54-56; Hist. Arian. 23; these are given in Soc. ii. 23; and for the Synod of Jerusalem, ii. 24; Ruf. i. 19.

71 From Athan. Apol. cont. Arian. 57, where also the names of the subscribers are given.

72 From Athan. Apol. cont. Arian. 58; Soc. ii. 24, only an allusion; Hil. Fragm. ii. 20; Sulp. Sev. H. S. ii. 36.

73 Athan. Apol. cont. Arian. 58; Hil. Fragm. ii. 20.

74 Soc. ii. 23.

1 According to Soz. a.d. 351, really a.d. 350.

2 Ruf. H. E. i. 19; Soc. ii. 25, 26. Soz. here condenses Soc. Cf. Athan. Apol. ad. Imp. Constantium.

3 Zos. ii. 41-53; Am. Marcel. xv. 1, 2; Petrus Patricius, Historia, 14; Eutrop. Brev. Hist. Rom. x. 9-11.

4 Soc. ii. 26, 27; Athan. Hist. Arian. 7; Apol de fuga sua, 3; cf. Theodoret, H. E. ii. 5.

5 See preceding references; Athan. is decided.

6 An independent chapter.

7 Niceph. Coll. H. E. ix. 30 adds that they were the notaries of Paul; hence the caption. The memory of these martyrs is celebrated in the Greek Church under the name of the Notaries, on the 25th of October.

8 Eutrop. Brev. Hist. Rom. x. 11, 12; Zos. ii. 44, 45; Athan. Apol. de fuga sua, 6, 7; Ep. ad Episc. aeg. et Lib. 7; Soc. ii. 25-29; Ruf. H. E. i. 19; Philost. iii. 22, 25.

9 The letter here alluded to by Sozomen was addressed by Cyril of Jerusalem to Constantius, and is extant among his works. c. 1165, M. P. G. 33; cf. Soc. ii. 28; Philost. iii. 26; Hieron. Chron. Eus. s. a.d. 357.

10 Athan. de Synodis, 8, 9; Soc. ii. 29-31, 37: Sulp. Sev. H. S. ii. 36, 37.

11 Soc. ii. 30, text.

12 Soc. ii. 30, Latin text translated into Greek.

13 Athan. de Synodis, 8; Soc. ii. 37, text translated into Greek.

14 Soc. ii. 32-34; cf. Philost. iii. 26-28; iv. 1; Orosius, vii. 29; language and order like Soz.; Sulp. Sev. H. S. ii. 38; Am. Marcel. xiv. 1, 7-9, 11; Zos. ii. 45-55; utrop. Brev. hist. Rom. x. 12, 13.

15 a.d. 353.

16 Soc. ii. 33, 34.

17 a.d. 353.

18 Independent chapter.

19 Sozomen is mistaken in saying twenty-five years; he was bishop from a.d. 337-352, fifteen years; this error is due to his earlier con fusion of Julius and Silvester.

20 See above, iii. 20.

21 Sozomen is the only historian who makes mention of this Synod at Antioch in Syria; probably from Sabinus.

22 Ruf. H. E. i. 19, 20; Athan. Hist. Arian. 31-46, and probably the lost letter of consecration addressed to the nuns; Theodoret, H. E. ii. 14, 15; Soc. ii. 36; Sulp. Sev. H. S. ii. 39.

23 Or, as Rufinus and Sulpicius Severus call him, Rhodanius. Socrates omits Rhodanius and Lucifer, and does not mention Hilary. Sozomen evidently used Rufinus. Rhodanius was bishop of Toulouse. Sulp. Sev. H. S. ii. 39.

24 The general was Syrianus; Hilary was notary to the Emperor Constantius, and was sent by him to expel Athanasius from Alexandria. On the whole passage, see Athan. Apol. ad Const. imp. 19-25; Apol. de fuga sua, 24.

25 Ruf. H. E. i. 18, 33, 34; Soc. ii. 45; iii. 14; Sozomen groups these stories without regard to time; see next chapter; he has some independent material.

26 Soc. iii. 14.
