This man served as general during the reign of Valens.[1] From Syedra,[2] he was extremely independent, and having been conspicuous for his spirit since childhood,[3] he was abundantly endowed in the matters of the body; for his organs were compounded with and suited to the impulses of his spirit, so that as soon as he decided to do a thing, it was done. As for education, he was not immersed in it nor was he totally lacking, but he was rather provincial, insofar as he was rather quick-tempered, and the savagery and wildness of his temper had not been tamed and subdued by reason.
