Text: Ammianus Marcellinus 21, 10, 6:
Ubi Victorem apud Sirmium visum, scriptorem historicum, exindeque venire praeceptum Pannoniae Secundae consularem praefecit et honoravit aenea statua, virum sobrietatis gratia aemulandum, multo post urbi praefectum.
Trans: Ammianus Marcellinus 21, 10, 6:
There (scil: at Naissus) he made Victor, the historian whom he had met at Sirmium and whom he had adviced to come from there, provincial governor (consularis) of Pannonia Secunda, and he honoured him with a bronze statue, a man who must be emulated for his sobriety, who became prefect of the city much later.
