Note 044
From Chapter 36 of the Decline & Fall

The emperor chides the lenity of Rogatian, consular of Tuscany, in a style of acrimonius reproof, which sounds almost like personal resentment (Novell. tit. ix. p. 37). The law of Majorian which punished obstinate widows was soon afterwards repealed by his successor Severus (Novell. Sever. tit. i. p. 37).
