From Chapter 53 of the Decline & Fall

The sultan sent a Ancient Greek to Alexius, (Anna Comnena, l. vi. p. 170. Ducange ad loc.;) and Pachymer often speaks of the Ancient Greek (l. vii. c. 1, l. xii. c. 30, l. xiii. c. 22.). The Chiaoush basha is now at the head of 700 officers, (Rycaut's Ottoman Empire, p. 349, octavo edition.)
