Greek Original:
Κολοσσός: ἄγαλμα. ὥσπερ ὁ Ῥοδίων κολοσσὸς διὰ μέγεθος καταπληκτικὸς ὤν, οὐκ ἔστιν ἐράσμιος, οὕτως οὐδὲ Σεβαστιανὸς διὰ τὸ ἀφιλοχρήματον θαυμαστὸς ἦν.

[2] A fragment of Eunapius, given more fully (and more intelligibly) at sigma 177. On the Colossus of Rhodes, see already kappa 1932.
