This man was from Sardis,[1] a philosopher; [sc. it was he] whom Julian sent for because of his writings.[2] He stayed in the country, when it came to him to do this from divine revelation. He did not consider his life in the light of ephemeral and empty reputation, but entrusting everything to the divine, he carried it all out from that point.
Greek Original:
Χρυσάνθιος: οὗτος ἐκ Σάρδεων ἦν, φιλόσοφος: ὃν διὰ γραμμάτων μεταπέμπεται Ἰουλιανός. ὁ δὲ κατὰ χώραν ἔμενε, τοῦτο ἐπελθὸν αὐτῷ πράττειν ἐκ τοῦ θείου. ὅς γε οὐ πρὸς τὴν περιτρέχουσαν καὶ κενὴν δόξαν ἀνέφερε τὸν ἑαυτοῦ βίον, ἀλλὰ πάντα εἰς τὸ θεῖον ὑπερτιθείς, ἐκεῖθεν ἅπαντα ἔπραττε.
