Headword: Ἰουστινιανός
Adler number: iota,447
Translated headword: Iustinianus, Ioustinianos, Justinian
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Justinian], the Rhinotmetos ["The one with his nose cut off"], emperor of [the] Romans, son of Constantine; [it was he] who in addition to his other evil deeds gave political authority to harsh and cruel men, one of whom was Stephanos [Stephen] the eunuch, a Persian, the imperial treasurer. Inflicting many tortures upon those in his power, he visited his insolence even upon Justinian’s mother, laying blows on her as the school-teachers do on their pupils. And a certain Theodotos who had become an anchorite in the Thracian pass, he made auditor of public funds, which is popularly called general logothete. This man exacted money with excessive cruelty. He killed the most conspicuous men by hanging them with ropes from above and surrounding them with smoking chaff. And Justinian made Leontios general of the Anatolian regions, and Patricius the Isaurian he kept under guard for three years; but later he appointed him general of Hellas. As Paul, the monk of the monastery of Kallistratos, the astrologer, and Gregory the Cappadocian, abbot of the monastery of Florus, foretold, he gained possession of the imperial power.
Greek Original:
Ἰουστινιανός, ὁ Ῥινότμητος, βασιλεὺς Ῥωμαίων, υἱὸς Κωνσταντίνου: ὃς πρὸς τοῖς ἄλλοις κακοῖς καὶ ἐς τὰς πολιτικὰς ἀρχὰς καθίστη ἄνδρας ἀπηνεῖς καὶ ὠμοτάτους, ὧν ἦν Στέφανος ὁ εὐνοῦχος, Πέρσης, ταμίας τῶν βασιλικῶν χρημάτων. καὶ πολλὰ τοὺς ὑπὸ χεῖρα αἰκιζόμενος ἄχρι καὶ εἰς τὴν μητέρα Ἰουστινιανοῦ τὴν τόλμαν ἐξήνεγκε, μάστιγας αὐτῇ ἐν σχήματι ὡς οἱ γραμματισταὶ τοὺς παῖδας ἐπιθέμενος. καὶ Θεόδοτόν τινα ἔγκλειστον γεγονότα κατὰ τὰ Θρᾳκῷα τοῦ στενοῦ τῶν δημοσίων λογιστήν, ὃν τὸ δημῶδες γενικὸν λογοθέτην, ἐποίησεν. ὃς ὑπερβολῇ ὠμότητος τὰ χρήματα ἔπραττε, μετεώροις σχοινίοις ἀναρτῶν καὶ περικαπνίζων ἀχύροις τοὺς περιφανεστάτους ἀπέκτεινε. καὶ Λεόντιον στρατηγὸν τῶν ἀνατολικῶν, καὶ Πατρίκιον Ἴσαυρον τρισὶν ἔτεσιν ὑποφρούριον ἐποίησεν Ἰουστινιανός, ὕστερον δὲ στρατηγὸν Ἑλλάδος ἀπέδειξεν. ὃν Παῦλος, τῆς Καλλιστράτου μονῆς μοναχός, ἀστρονόμος, καὶ Γρηγόριος Καππαδόκης, ἡγούμενος τῆς τοῦ Φλώρου μονῆς, προεμαντεύσαντο, καὶ ἐγκρατὴς τῆς βασιλείας ἐγένετο.
