Headword: Λουκιανὸς
Adler number: lambda,684
Translated headword: Lucian
Vetting Status: high
Another one,[1] count of the east, in the reign of the emperor Arkadios.[2] His position meant that one who held it was to rule over all those who governed the eastern provinces, and to rectify in case of those who were not acting according to their duty. And this man in fact, showing every virtue befitting a ruler to his subjects, became famous for his justice and wisdom and everything that is an ornament to rulers, as he did not discriminate between persons and did not contemplate anything other than what the law suggested. Doubtless as a result he, turning away the uncle of the emperor, Eucherios, who was asking something contrary to the norm, incensed this man so much that the man falsely accused him before the emperor. And since the emperor said that Rufinus, who had given such a powerful position to such a man, was the one to blame, Rufinus, seizing on the pretext, tortured Lucian with leaden balls on his tendon.[3]
Greek Original:
Λουκιανὸς ἕτερος, κόμης τῆς ἑῴας, ἐπὶ Ἀρκαδίου τοῦ βασιλέως. αὕτη δὲ ἡ ἀρχὴ ἐβούλετο τὸν προβεβλημένον αὐτῆς ἐφεστάναι πᾶσι τοῖς τῆς ἑῴας ἐπαρχίας ἰθύνουσι καὶ ἐπὶ τοῖς οὐ κατὰ τὸ δέον πραττομένοις ἰθύνειν. οὗτος τοίνυν πᾶσαν ἀρχικὴν ἀρετὴν εἰς τοὺς ἀρχομένους ἐπιδεικνύμενος ἐπὶ δικαιοσύνῃ καὶ σωφροσύνῃ καὶ πᾶσι τοῖς ἄρχοντας κοσμεῖν δυναμένοις διαβόητος ἦν, οὔτε προσώπων διαφορὰν οὔτε ἕτερόν τι κατὰ νοῦν ἔχων, πλὴν ὧν ὁ νόμος ὑπηγόρευεν. ὥστε ἀμέλει καὶ τὸν τοῦ βασιλέως θεῖον Εὐχέριον αἰτοῦντά τι παρὰ τὸ προσῆκον ἀποσεισάμενος ἐς τοσοῦτον ἐκίνησεν, ὥστε πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα διαβαλεῖν. ἐπεὶ δὲ ὁ βασιλεὺς αἴτιον εἶπεν εἶναι Ῥουφῖνον, ἀνδρὶ τοιούτῳ τοσαύτην ἀρχὴν δεδωκότα, λαβὼν πρόφασιν ὁ Ῥουφῖνος τὸν Λουκιανὸν σφαίραις μολυβδίναις ᾐκίσατο κατὰ τοῦ τένοντος.
