Zosimus, who describes the fall of Tatian and his son (1. iv. [c. 52] p. 273, 274), asserts their innocence; and even his testimony may outweigh the charges of their enemies (Cod. Theod. tom iv. p. 489), who accuse them of oppressing the Curiae. The connection of Tatian with the Arians, while he was praefect of Egypt (A.D. 373), inclines Tillemont to believe that he was guilty of every crime (Hist. des Emp. tom. v. p. 360; Mem. Eccles. tom. vi. p. 589).
