Note 018
From Chapter 60 of the Decline & Fall

The history of the reign of Isaac Angelus is composed, in three books, by the senator Nicetas (p. 228 - 290); and his offices of logothete, or principal secretary, and judge of the veil or palace, could not bribe the impartiality of the historian. He wrote, it is true, after the fall and death of his benefactor.
