The works of Facundus of Hermiane and Liberatus of Carthageare of particular relevance here; both of them spent some time in the East, where they gathered material for their work. The chronicle of Victor of Tunnuna is also very important, as it followsthe text of Theodore Lector exactly for the period when Theodore was an autonomous writer,not depending on Socrates, Sozomenos and Theodoretus. Some attention is also given to Junillus Africanus, who wrote his exegetical treatise in Constantinople.
