"But he, being a haughty man and arrogant and habituated to military campaigns and regarding the principal good in human affairs [to be] honor and fame and overflowing wealth, and to possess for himself whatever he might wish, and impudently not to know whether it is day or night because of drunkenness nor whether the sun is rising or setting, considering that the disposition of the sky is the same, having torn himself away from diverse harmless pastimes into negligence and torturing his spirit for his love of reputation, he struck out resolutely from Pamphylia and was turning back [towards Lydia]."[1]
Timasios: this was the man whom Eutropios brought.[2]
Greek Original:
Γαῦρος: ὁ δὲ γαῦρός τε ὢν ἀνὴρ καὶ ἀγέρωχος καὶ στρατείαις ὡμιληκὼς καὶ τοῦτο πρῶτον ἀγαθὸν ἡγούμενος, τὸ ἐν ἀνθρώποις τιμὴν καὶ δόξαν καὶ πλοῦτον ἐπικλύζοντα καὶ τὸ ἔχειν ἑαυτῷ ὅτι βούλοιτο κεχρῆσθαι καὶ ἀδεῶς διὰ μέθην νύκτα καὶ ἡμέραν οὐκ εἰδέναι οὔτε ἀνατέλλοντα καὶ δυόμενον ἥλιον, ἴσα καὶ οὐρανοῦ εἶναι νομίσας τὴν μετάκλησιν, ἐκ τῶν ἀλύπων καὶ διακεχυμένων εἰς ὀλιγωρίαν διατριβῶν ἀπορρήξας ἑαυτὸν καὶ κατατείνας τὴν ψυχὴν εἰς φιλοδοξίαν βαρὺς ἀναστὰς ἐκ Παμφυλίας ἀνέστρεφε. Τιμάσιος: οὗτος ἦν, ὃν Εὐτρόπιος ἤγαγεν.
