The flight of Valentinian and the love of Theodosius for his sister are related by Zosimus (1. iv. [c. 43] p. 263, 264). Tillemont produces some weak and ambiguous evidence to antedate the second marriage of Theodosius (Hist. des Empereurs, tom. v. p. 740), and consequently to refute ces contes de Zosime qui seroient trop contraires a la piete de Theodose.
