From Chapter 32 of the Decline & Fall

Father Montfaucon, who, by the command of his Benedictine superiors, was compelled (see Longueruana, tom. i. p.205) to execute the laborious edition of St. Chrysostom, in thirteen volumes in folio (Paris, 1738), amused himself with extracting from that immense collection of morals some curious antiquities, which illustrate the manners of the Theodosian age (see Chrysostom, Opera, tom. xiii. p. 192-l96), and his French Dissertation, in the Memoires de l'Acad. des Inscriptions, tom. xiii. p. 474-490.
