From Chapter 36 of the Decline & Fall

St. Pulcheria died A.D. 453, four years before her nominal husband; and her festival is celebrated on the 10th of September by the modern Greeks: she bequeathed an immense patrimony to pious, or at least to ecclesiastical uses. See Tillemont. Memoires Eccles. tom. xv. p. 18l-l84.
