63 The acts of this Synod of Constantinople were written by Acacius. Cf. Philost. iv. 12. Further, cf. Philost. iv. 12, v. 1; Athan. de Synodis, 30, the formulary; Soc. ii. 41 (with the revised formulary), 42, 43; Theodoret, H. E. ii. 27, 28. Soz. enlarges on the depositions, giving us much new material; Theodoret gives a letter against Aetius (from Sabinus?).

64 Further mention is made of this Hermogenes by Am. Marcell. xix. 12, 6; xxi. 6, 9.

65 Cf. iv. 22.

66 See references to previous chapter.

67 See the abrogation of the time-limit through a Synod convened by Eudoxius. Philost. vii. 6.

68 Soc. ii. 43; Ruf. H. E. i. 21. Soz. has independent details.

69 Cf. with Ruf. H. E. i. 21.

70 Soc. ii. 45; Ruf. H. E. ii. 25; Theodoret, H. E. ii. 6. Soz. independent.

71 Cf. Philost. iv. 9.

72 After a.d. 395. Yet according to vii. 2, the Macedonians took advantage of the Gratian law and repossessed the churches from which Valens had ejected them.

73 Soc. ii. 44. The order is the same in Soz., but with many new details. Philost. v. 1, 5; Ruf. H. E. i. 24. Cf. Theodoret, H. E. ii. 31.

74 Soc. ii. 45. Soz. and he are much alike, but yet each has independent statements; both evidently draw from the same source. Athan. de Synodis, 31; Ruf. H. E. i. 25.

75 1 Cor. xi. 12.

76 Soc. ii. 45. Soz. has some order, but varying points.

77 Namely, Artemius, who was afterwards martyred under Julian. Am. Marcel. xxii. 11. 3-8.

78 Soc. iv. 25. Epiphanius (adv. Hoeres, ii. 3, 10; Hoeres, lxvi.), places another Cyril after Herennius. Soc. calls Erennius, Arrenius.

1 Soc. ii. 47, and iii. 1; Ruf. H. E. i. 26; Orosius, vii. 29, 30; Philost. vi. 5, 6. Soz. has much that is independent. Cf. Eunapius, Zos., and Am. Marcel. under the reigns of Constantius and Julian. Eutrop. Brev. Hist. Rom. x. 14, 15.

2 Soc. iii. 1. Much the same order is followed by Soz., but with the addition of many details. Greg. Naz. adv. Julianum, i. and ii. Invectiva; Eunapius, Excerpt, i. 1, 2; Excerpt, ii. 1-24; Zos. ii. 45; iii. 2-29, 34. Am. Marcel. xv.-xxiv. Theodoret, H. E. iii. 2, 3, follows Soz. succinctly.

3 Greg. Naz. Or. cont. Julianum, i. 54.

4 Greg. Naz. cont. Julianum, 1 inv. 55.

5 Under Aurelian, a.d. 274. The Greeks celebrate him Sept. 2; Latins, Aug. 17. He is said by Greg. Naz. (Orat. 44, 12), and by Basil (Hom. 23, on St. Mammas) to have been a shepherd and also a martyr. The miraculous story here jrelated is given also by Greg. Naz. in his First Oration against Julian, 25, though he does not mention the martyr's name.

6 See Eunap. V. S. vita Maximi; Julian wrote four letters to him, Op. Ep. 15, 16, 38, 39; to be distinguished from another teacher of Julian, Maximus of Epirus.

7 Sozomen is mistaken here, as Constantia was married to Gallus Caesar, the brother of Julian. Soc. iii. 1, and Am. Marcel. xv. 8, 18, give Helena as the name of Julian's wife.

8 As Eunapius, Exc. ii. 3.

9 An independent chapter; cf. Theodoret, H. E. iii. 6, 7.

10 The record is unique with Soz. Cf. the allusion in Greg. Naz. Or. cont. Julianum, 1. 92; and Am. Marcel. xx. 9. 1, 2 (Mazaca).

11 Am. Marcel. in quotation above; and Philost. ix. 12, who says that the original name of Caesarea was Mazaca, from Mosoch, afterwards changed into Mazaca by inflection.

12 To Tuxceion was the Byzantine term for the temple of the city genius. this one is mentioned by Greg. Naz. Or. cont. Julianum, i. 92, as Tuxh; similarly in Or. xviii. 34.

13 Concerning this Maris, see Soc. iii. 12.

14 Soc. iii. 11; Philost. vi. 7, vii. 4.
