Roman emperors Honorius and Theodosius II decree that the ban on Eunomians in the imperial service does not apply to the office staffs of governors.

This new law says:

"The law about the prohibition of Eunomians from the imperial service ... does not apply to persons who are members of gubernatorial office staffs.

They are bound to these posts in which veterans, after completion of their terms of imperial service, are required to provide compulsory service as commissary officers." [CT 16.5.61]
