Es besteht eben, wie der Historiker durchblicken läßt, faktisch ein Abhängigkeitsverhältnis zwischen beiden Brüdern.

Interpreting Ammianus Marcellinus (London/New York 1999) 117–126, bes. 120; Lenski, Failure of Empire, 291. 8 In dieser Partie formuliert Themistios ein Anliegen, das auch in seinen anderen Reden, nicht nur in jenen auf Valens, immer wieder zum Ausdruck kommt: Der Anspruch des Militärs soll zurückgedrängt werden. Der Kaiser soll seine Herrschaft weniger auf militärische Macht gründen als auf Tugend, wobei die Tugend nicht zum wenigsten in der Förderung der Philosophie und der Stadt Konstantinopel besteht, aber natürlich auch die üblichen Herrscherqualitäten wie Milde oder Gerechtigkeit einschließt.

24 Obgleich ich keinen starken Grund habe, daran zu zweifeln, daß die verschiedenen Verzögerungen, die Ammian schildert, historisch sind, so setzt er sie doch als ein darstellerisches Mittel ein, das die Erhebung Valentinians zu einem zögerlichen, von keinerlei Enthusiasmus für den Kandidaten getragenen Prozeß macht. Zwar bestreitet Ammian nicht, daß Valentinian dem Amt gewachsen sei, aber im Verlauf seines Berichtes wird dem Leser deutlich, daß geeignetere Kandidaten denkbar gewesen wären. 6. 1.
