Adler number: nu,477
Translated headword: Nomos
Vetting Status: high
[Nomos] and Januarius, I suppose, surpassing the citizens in fairness and justice and practically all other men now living and involved in reversed political circumstances, were approved and esteemed by citizens and aliens. For they had become most worthy to the country and most kindly to the aliens. Having preferred the calm and simple life, they preferred their own possessions to be fewer rather than to have more than others. These aspects, then, were common to them; individually, Nomos was more clever and more fond of learning in treatises[1] for those desiring a taste of philosophy and such as do introductory teaching of the young. And of the highly respected men among us he was most discerning of the good and bad literary qualities of all poems and compositions. In sum, I would say that both Severianus[2] and Agapius,[3] the philosopher, were not of the same level in literary criticism. Januarius, on the other hand, was more versed and sensible in political affairs than his brother, Nomos, and more temperate and ordered in other matters.
