Ὁνωρία, ἀδελφὴ Βαλεντινιανοῦ: ἥτις καὶ αὐτὴ τῶν βασιλικῶν εἴχετο σκήπτρων. Εὐγενίῳ δέ τινι τὴν ἐπιμέλειαν τῶν αὐτῆς ἔχοντι πραγμάτων ἥλω ἐς λάθριον ἐρχομένη λέχος, καὶ ἐπὶ τῷ ἁμαρτήματι ἀνῃρέθη μὲν ἐκεῖνος, ἡ δὲ τῶν βασιλείων ἐξηλάθη.
Notes:
Justa Grata Honoria, elder sister of Valentinian III (emperor 425-455). She held the title of Augusta and has her own De Imperatoribus Romanis entry (Ralph W. Mathisen, web address 1). The present material has been attributed to both John of Antioch (fr. 199.2 FHG [4.613], now 292 Roberto) and Priscus (first advocated by de Boor; now P's fr.64 Bornmann).
[1] Valentinian: omicron 762, omicron 763.
