Note 005
From Chapter 25 of the Decline & Fall

Athanasius, at the court of Antioch, is agreeably represented by La Bleterie (Hist. de Jovien, tom i. p. 121-148): he translates the singular and original conferences of the emperor, the primate of Egypt, and the Arian deputies. The Abbe is not satisfied with the coarse pleasantry of Jovian; but his partiality for Athanasius assumes, in 'his' eyes the character of justice.
