Note 040
From Chapter 24 of the Decline & Fall

Ammianus (xxiii 2) uses a word much too soft for the occasion, monuerat. Muratori (Fabricius, Bibliothec. Graec. tom. vii. p. 86) has published an epistle from Julian to the satrap Arsaces; fierce, vulgar, and (though it might deceive Sozomen, 1. vi. c. 5 [c. 1]), most probably spurious. La Bleterie (Hist. de Jovien, tom. ii. p. 339) translates and rejects it.
