Ania'nus the referendarius (Dufresne, Gloss. s. v.) of Alaric the second, king of the Visigoths, and employed in that capacity to authenticate with his subscription the official copies of the Breviarium. (Dict. of Ant. s. v. Breviariumn.) In his subscription he used the words Anianus, vir spectabilis subscripsi et edidi, and it is probable that, from a misunderstanding of the word edidi, proceeded the common notion that he was the author of the Romano-Gothic code, which has thence sometimes been called Breviarium Aniani. The subscription took place at Aire (Aduris) in Gascoigne, A. D. 506. (Silberrad, ad Heinec. Hist. Jur. Germ. § 15.) Sigebert (de ecclesiasticis scriptoribus, 100.70, cited by Jac. Godefroi, Prolegomeona in Cod. Theodos. § 5) says, that Anianlus translated from Greek into Latin the work of Chrysostom upon St. Matthew; but respecting this, see the following article, No. 2. [J.T.

i/, oder die Schrift über, die Zeitabschnitte, 8vo. Heid. 1836.) Eleventh century revisions The edition of Schardius gives the work nearly in its original form; Cujas, Leunclavius, and Zachariae present us with a second edition of the same work as revised about the eleventh century by some editor, who has added scholia of his own, and introduced references to the Basilica. (Biener, Gesch. der Novellen, p. 124.) *Ai( a)gwgai\ e)n suno/yei Nessel (cited by Sammet. Diss. de Hypobolo in Meerm. Thus. Suppl. p. 382) attributes, not to Eustathius Romanus, but to the earlier professor Eustathius, a synopsis of juridical actions, entitled *Ai( a)gwgai\ e)n suno/yei, which is found appended in manuscript to the Procheiron auctum. Further Information Zachariae, Hist. Jur. Gr. Rom. Delin. § 48; Heimbach, de Basil. Orig. p. 144. 3. Edict of Eustathius An Edict of the Eustathius who was Pr. Pr. Orientis under Anastasius in A.

buch des Röm. Rechts, p. 52, n. (b) (12th ed. Gessen. 1842). There is a German translation of the first book, with copious notes of little merit, by Von Brockdorff (8vo. Schles. 1824). There are French translations of the whole work by Boulet (Paris, 1826), Domenget (1843), and Pellat (1844). From the forthcoming volume of notes and commentary, by the last-mentioned eminent professor, much is expected. Lex Romana Wisigothorum In the Lex Romana Wisigothorum, published under Alaric II. in A. D. 506, for the use of the Roman subjects of the Westgothic kingdom, the Institutes of Gaius appear, remodelled in barbarous fashion. They have been worse treated than the Theodosian Code and other legal works introduced into the same collection; for while a barbarous interpretation (scintilla) was subjoined to the text of the other works, Gaius was found to be so full of antiquated law, that his text, in its original state, would have been unsuitable to the character of the times. Accordingly, i
gnomen of the Gens Valeria at Rome, was originally assumed by M. Valerius Maximus [No. 1] after his relief of Messana in Sicily from blockade by the Carthaginians in the second year of the first Punic war, B. C. 263. (Macr. 1.6; Sen. Brev. Vit. 13.) For the antiquity of the Messalla branch of the Valerian gens see Tibullus (Carm. 1.28; comp. Dionys. A. R. 4.67; Rutil. Iter. 1.169; Sidon. Apoll. Ep. 1.9). They appear for the first time on the consular Fasti in B. C. 263, and for the last in A. D. 506 ; and, during this period of nearly eight centuries, they held twenty-two consulships and three censorships. (Sidon. Apoll. Carm. 9.302; Rutil. l.c.; Symmach. Ep. 7.90.) The cognomen Messalla, frequently written Messala, appears with the agnomens Barbatus, Niger, Rufus, with the nomens Ennodius, Pacatus, Silius, Thrasia Priscus, Vipstanus, and with the praenomens Potitus and Volesus, and was itself originally, and when combined with Corvinus, an agnomen, as M. Valerius Maximus Corvinus Mes

inth book treats of criminal law; the tenth and eleventh treat of the public revenue and some matters relating to procedure; the twelfth, thirteenth, fourteenth and fifteenth books treat of the constitution and the administration of towns and other corporations; and the sixteenth contains the law relating to ecclesiastical matters. MSS Sources The Theodosian Code has been preserved in an epitome contained in the Breviarium which was made by order of Alaric II., king of the Visigoths, in A. D. 506, but several constitutions and some entire titles are omitted in this epitome. It has also been preserved in the MSS. of the original Code, yet only in an incomplete form, and we have consequently to refer to the Breviarium for a considerable part of the Theodosian Code. The constitutions in the Code of Justinian, which belong to the period comprised in the Theodosian Code, are taken from the Code of Theodosius, but have undergone considerable alterations.
