[Justinian], the Rhinotmetos ["The one with his nose cut off"], emperor of [the] Romans, son of Constantine; [it was he] who in addition to his other evil deeds gave political authority to harsh and cruel men, one of whom was Stephanos [Stephen] the eunuch, a Persian, the imperial treasurer. Inflicting many tortures upon those in his power, he visited his insolence even upon Justinian’s mother, laying blows on her as the school-teachers do on their pupils. And a certain Theodotos who had become an anchorite in the Thracian pass, he made auditor of public funds, which is popularly called general logothete. This man exacted money with excessive cruelty. He killed the most conspicuous men by hanging them with ropes from above and surrounding them with smoking chaff. And Justinian made Leontios general of the Anatolian regions, and Patricius the Isaurian he kept under guard for three years; but later he appointed him general of Hellas. As Paul, the monk of the monastery of Kallistratos, the astrologer, and Gregory the Cappadocian, abbot of the monastery of Florus, foretold, he gained possession of the imperial power.
