Excerpta Valesiana

   A short biography of Constantine I (q.v.) written in the late fourth century by an anonymous pagan author. Compared to the fulsome praise of Eusebios of Caesarea (q.v.), the view of Constantine is surprisingly objective. The author even makes occasional use of the Christian history of Orosius (q.v.). The title derives from its ninth-century manuscript, published in the 17th century by Henri de Valois (Valesius). The manuscript also contains a later work about Ostrogothic Italy (q.v.) under Odoacer and Theodoric the Great (qq.v.).
