Note 055
From Chapter 17 of the Decline & Fall

Themist. Orat. iii. p. 48 edit. Hardouin. Sozomen, 1. ii. c. 3. Zosim. 1. ii. [c. 31] p. 107. Anonym. Valesian. p. 175. If we could credit Codinus (p. 10) [p. 20, sq., ed. Bonn], Constantine built houses for the senators on the exact model of their Roman palaces, and gratified them, as well as himself, with the pleasure of an agreeable surprise; but the whole story is full of fictions and inconsistencies.
