Adler number: pi,793
Translated headword: patrician
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Meaning] father of the commonwealth.[1]
"He sent as envoys those who had served worthily in the leadership of the senate. And in fact they happened to be patricians."[2]
"The emperor Theodosius the Lesser, because of his anger against Antiochus the provost who had been accused of high treason, issued an edict that a eunuch could not be numbered among the patricians. Accordingly the provost was stripped of his office and made public property and assigned to the priests."[3]
Greek Original:
Πατρίκιος: πατὴρ τοῦ κοινοῦ. ὁ δὲ πέμπει πρεσβευτὰς τοὺς ἐν τῇ κορυφαίῳ τῆς συγκλήτου βουλῆς τελοῦντας ἄξια. πατρίκιοι δ' ἄρα ὄντες ἐτύγχανον. ὁ βασιλεὺς Θεοδόσιος ὁ μικρὸς ὀργῇ τῇ πρὸς Ἀντίοχον τὸν πραιπόσιτον, διαβληθέντα εἰς καθοσίωσιν ἐξεφώνησε διάταξιν, εὐνοῦχον ἐν τοῖς πατρικίοις μὴ τελεῖν. διὸ καὶ καθῃρέθη ὁ πραιπόσιτος τῆς τιμῆς καὶ ἐδημοσιεύθη καὶ τοῖς ἱερεῦσι κατετάγη.
