This [sc. was] the number of the so-called scholarii, who were three thousand five hundred [...] Justinian added two thousand others, whom he named thus.

Ὑπεράριθμοι: οὗτος ὁ ἀριθμὸς τῶν σχολαρίων καλουμένων τρισχιλίων πεντακοσίων ὄντων ἑτέρους δισχιλίους ἐντέθεικεν Ἰουστινιανός, οὓς οὕτως ἐκάλεσεν.

Procopius, Secret History 24.15 & 19. The scholarii were an imperial guard formed by Constantine I, replacing the Pretorian Cohort. The name (with a Latin suffix) comes from the scholae of cadets assigned to the Palace: see sigma 1797.
