33. Julian, Orot. 1, 20d-21a, cf. P. Peeters, 'L'intervention politique de Constance II dans la Grande Arménie, en 338,' Bulletin de l'Académie Royale de Belgique, Classe des Lettres5 17 (1931), 10-47, reprinted in his Recherches d'histoire et de philologie orientales 1 (Subsidia Hagiographica 27 [Brussels, 1951]), 222-250. Peeters dated Constantius' intervention in Armenia late in the year because he placed Shapur's firs: siege of Nisibis in 338, with appeal to E. Stein, Geschichte des spätrömischen Reiches 1 (Vienna, 1928), 212, and to N. H. Baynes JEA 11 (1925), 66-69. But Athanasius' journey to Caesarea must belong to the spring of 338, not the autumn: the siege, therefore, should belong to 337, as argued by Baynes, ib. 66, and in 'Constantine and the Christians of Persia,' JRS 75 (1985), 126-136 at 133.

35. As argued by Schwartz, Ges. Sehr. 3 (1959), 291/2.
