hematician and architect, born at Tralles, in Lydia, in the sixth century after Christ. His father's name was Stephanus, who was a physician (Alex. Trall. 4.1, p. 198); one of his brothers was the celebrated Alexander Trallianus; and Agathias mentions (Hist. v. p. 149), that his three other brothers, Dioscorus, Metrodorus, and Olympius, were each eminent in their several professions. He was one of the architects employed by the emperor Justinian in the building of the church of St. Sophia, A. D. 532 (Procop. in Combefis. Manip. Reruns CPol. p. 284; Agath. Hist. v. p. 149, &c.; Du Cange, CPolis Christ. lib. iii. p. 11; Anselm. Bandur. ad Antiq. CPol. p. 772), and to him Eutocius dedicated his Commentary on the Conica of Apollonius. Works Mathematical Fragment Editions A fragment of one of his mathematical works was published at Paris, 4to. by M. Dupuy, 1777, with the title "Fragment d'un Ouvrage Grec d'Anthemius sur des `Paradoxes de Mécanique;' revu et corrigé sur quatre Manusc
ever produced. He was born about A. D. 505 (comp. Procop. Goth. 1.5, Pers. 1.12) at Germania, a town of Illyria. (Procop. Vand. 1.11, de Aedif. 4.1.) His public life is so much mixed up with the history of the times, that it need not here be given except in outline, and his private life is known to us only through the narrative of the licentiousness and intrigues of his unworthy wife Antonina in the Secret History of Procopius. He first appears as a young man in the service of Justinian under the emperor Justin I. A. D. 520-527 (Procop. Pers. 1.12), and on the accession of the former, was made general of the Eastern armies, to check the inroads of the Persians, A. D. 529-532 (Procop. Pers. 1.13-21); shortly after which he married Antonina, a woman of wealth and rank, but of low birth and morals, and following the profession of an actress. (Procop. Hist. Arcan. 4, 5.) The two great scenes of his history were the wars against the Vandals in Africa, and against the Ostrogoths in Italy.
poet of Coptus in Egypt, was the son of Paniscus, and flourished in the reign of Anastasius I., A. D. 491-518. Works Christodorus is classed by Suidas as an epic poet (e)popoio/s). 1. *)/Ekfrasis tw=n a)galma/twn tw=n ei)s to\ dhmo/sion gumna/sion ta e)pikaloume/non tou= *Zeuci/ppou There is still extant a poem of 416 hexameter verses, in which he describes the statues in the public gymnasium of Zeuxippus. This gymnasium was built by Septimius Severus at Byzantium, and was burnt down A. D. 532. The poem of Christodorus is entitled *)/Ekfrasis tw=n a)galma/twn tw=n ei)s to\ dhmo/sion gumna/sion ta e)pikaloume/non tou= *Zeuci/ppou. Editions It is printed in the Antiq. Constantinop. of Anselmus Banduri, Par. 1711, Venet. 1729, and in the Greek Anthology. Further Information Bruck, Anal. ii. p. 456; Jacobs, iii. p. 161. Other Works He also wrote:-- 2. *)Isaurika/, a poem, in six books, on the taking of Isauria by Anastasius. 3. Three books of Epigrams, of which two epigram
Julia'nus 2. Surnamed the Egyptian, because he was for a time governor of Egypt. Works The Greek Anthology contains seventy-one epigrams which bear his name, and in which the author appears as an imitator of earlier poems of the same kind. They are mostly of a descriptive character, and refer to works of art. Julianus probably lived in the reign of Justinian, for among his epigrams there are two upon Hypatius, the nephew of the emperor Anastasius, who was put to death A. D. 532, by the command of Justinian. Another epigram is written upon Joannes, the grandson of Hypatius. Further Information Brunck, Anal. 2.493; Jacobs, Anthol. Graec. 3.195 comp. xiii. p. 906.

of Chalcedon. In his ninety-first year (A. D. 529 or 530) he undertook another journey to Constantinople, where he obtained from Justinianus I., now emperor [JUSTINIANUS I.], a remission of taxes for Palestine, in consideration of the ravages occasioned by a revolt of the Samaritans, an incident worthy of notice, as furnishing one of the few links in the obscure history of that remarkable people. He received also many gifts for his monasteries. Saba died in his monastery, the Magna Laura (A. D. 532), in his ninety-fourth year. Saba was a man of great energy. He acted an important part in that turbid period of ecclesiastical history, and fearlessly threw himself into the agitation arising from the great Monophysite schism ; nor does age seem either to have diminished his ardour or restricted his exertions. Works Early in the seventeenth century (A. D. 1603, also in 1613 and 1643) there was printed at Venice, in folio, an office book, or Liturgy of the Greek Church, entitled, th=s
Theo'philus (*Qeo/filos), was one of the lawyers of Constantinople who were employed by Justinian on his first Code, on the Digest and on the composition of the Institutes (De Novo Codice faciendo, § 1. De. Justinianco Codice conformando, § 2. De Confirmatione Digestorum, Tanta, &c, § 9, Instit. D. Justiniani Prooemium, § 3). In A. D. 5218 Theophilus was comes sacri consistorii and juris doctor at Constantinople. In A. D. 529 he was ex magistro and juris doctor at Constantinople ; and in A. D. 532 he had the titles of Illustris, Magister and Juris peritus at Constantinople. Works This Theophilus is the author of the Greek translation or paraphrase of the Institutes of Justinian, a fact which is now universally admitted, though some of the older critics supposed that there were two Theophili, one the compiler of the Institutes, and the other the author of the Greek version. The Greek paraphrase was made perhaps shortly after the promulgation of the Institutes A. D. 533; and it wa<
