Note 103
From Chapter 36 of the Decline & Fall

Galatam concitatum. Sirmond (in This notes to Ennodius [tom. i. p. 659]) applies this appellation to Anthemius himself. The emperor was probably born in the province of Galatia, whose inhabitants, the Gallo-Grecians, were supposed to unite the vices of a savage and a corrupted people.
