[Constantine the great] emperor. Concerning him Eunapius[1] wrote idle nonsense, and I disregard this in respect for the man.[2][3]
Greek Original:
Kônstantinos, ho megas basileus. peri hou egrapsen Eunapios phlênaphous kai parêka auta aidoi tou andros.
For Constantine see already kappa 2284.
[1] The following note about Eunapius is abridged from the introduction to the translation of Eusebius' Life of Constantine in the on-line edition of Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers, Ser. II, Vol. I at CCEL (web address 1): "(22) Eunapius (Anti-Christian) (ab. 347-414) ... was born at Sardis about 347, and died after 414 a.d. (cf. Müller, Fragm. 87 [Blockley, Eunapius fr. 72, 1-2]). He was a teacher of rhetoric, and besides this work wrote a continuation of the history of Dexippus, extending from 270-404 a.d. Fragments of this are preserved, but none relating to Constantine. Photius (Cod. 77) says that he calumniated the Christians, especially Constantine. ... Much of his history is supposed to be incorporated in Zosimus, and this gives importance to his name, weight to Zosimus, and light on the hostile position of Zosimus towards Constantine."
[2] That is, for Constantine.
