This man[1] was at his height in the time of Zeno. He continued in the chapel to which he was elected presbyter. Obtaining the greatest wealth from Illus[2] and corrupting himself day by day with Epicurean precepts, this infidel said that the universe was self-engendered and arranged not by God, but by the activity of the stars. For just as each of them will come beforehand borne around together with their rotation, they are assigned pre-eminence according to the influence of those which are coming into being.
