The adventures, usurpation, and fall of Procopius, are related, in a regular series, by Ammianus (xxvi. 6, 7, 8, 9, 10) and Zosimus (1. iv. [c. 4 seq.] p. 203-210) . They often illustrate, and seldom contradict, each other. Themistius (Orat. vii. p. 9l,92) adds some base panegyric; and Eunapius (p. 83, 84 [p. 104, ed. Comm.]) some malicious satire.
