Translation:
He was an eloquent man [who lived] in the time of the emperor Valens[1] and when Agelius was bishop of Constantinople;[2] [it was he] who once served as a soldier at the palace, but then was a presbyter of the church of the Novatians,[3] teaching Anastasia, the daughter of the emperor, grammar.
Greek Original:
Μαρκιανός: οὗτος ἐπὶ Οὐάλεντος τοῦ βασιλέως ἦν καὶ Ἀγελίου ἐπισκόπου Κωνσταντινουπόλεως, ἐλλόγιμος: ὃς πάλαι μὲν κατὰ τὰ βασίλεια ἐστρατεύετο, τότε δὲ πρεσβύτερος τῆς Ναυατιανῶν ἦν ἐκκλησίας, γραμματικοὺς λόγους Ἀναστασίαν τὴν τοῦ βασιλέως θυγατέρα διδάσκων.
Notes:
This Marcian (not to be confused with his homonyms mu 208 and mu 209) is known because his repute influenced the Arian emperor Valens to moderate his persecution of the Novatians for their belief in the doctrine of homoousia.
The text of this entry comes from Socrates, Historia Ecclesiastica 4.9 (translation at web address 1).
