Note:
[1] Quotation unidentifiable, although the use of the neuter plural headword in such a context (of promises) is a favorite idiom of Procopius. Perhaps, therefore, a paraphrase or approximation of De bellis [On the Wars of Justinian] 1.20.11 (= Constantine Porphyrogenitus, Excerpta de legationibus) or 5.8.25. [Or 1.25.11: DW.] Another possible paraphrased source is Gregory of Nyssa, On the Song of Songs 6.131.
