Nicene and Ante-Nicene Fathers, Ser. II, Vol. VIII:
The Letters.: Libanius to Basil.

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Letter CCCLIV.

Libanius to Basil.

Now I recognise men’s description of me!  Basil has praised me, and I am hailed victor over all!  Now that I have received your vote, I am entitled to walk with the proud gait of a man who haughtily looks down on all the world.  You have composed an oration against drunkenness.  I should like to read it.  But I am unwilling to try to say anything clever.  When I have seen your speech it will teach me the art of expressing myself.

Next: Libanius to Basil.
