Note 064
From Chapter 28 of the Decline & Fall

Zosimus, who styles himself Count and Ex-advocate of the Treasury, reviles, with partial and indecent bigotry, the Christian princes, and even the father of his sovereign. His work must have been privately circulated, since it escaped the invectives of the ecclesiastical historians prior to Evagrius (1. iii. c. 40-41), who lived towards the end of the sixth century.
