Date inconsistency?[edit]

"Majorian was the author of a number of remarkable laws, contained in the Codex Theodosianus."

But Codex Theodosianus states that "the compilation was published in 438" - long before Majorian was Emperor. Something hasn't been fully explained here. If it means they were *added* to the CT, it should say so explicitly. 86.132.138.201 23:17, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

It's probably a reference to the Novellae Post-Theodosianae. According to this site:
"The imperial constitutions subsequent to the publication of the Theodosianus got the name of Novels (novellae leges). There were three collections of these, all made in the Western Empire, and they are generally known as post-Theodosian Novels. The first collection containing edicts of Theodosius himself, sent by him to Valentinian III in 447, was published by the latter emperor in the following year. The second collection contained in addition to edicts of Theodosius some edicts of Marcian and other emperors of the East, and also some of Valentinian, Majorian and other emperors of the West." —Abou 00:27, 31 July 2007 (UTC)

Theoderic the Visigoth[edit]

Quote: Having during his stay in Gaul defeated Theodoric the Visigoth and then concluded an alliance with him, at the beginning of 461 he crossed... - Theoderic was in 460 about 8 Years old and after this trouble as Hostage in the hand of the Eastromans. It is impossible that he was the Chief of the trouble or "be defeated" or than "allianced" in this time. Please, forgive me my lousy english -- Hartmann Schedel Prost 13:55, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

hm, ok I right see now that its meant Theoderic II., but why was Theoderic the Great as Ostrogoth in the Age of 8 Years than Hostage in Byzanz? -- Hartmann Schedel Prost 14:07, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

Use of the word concerted.[edit]

"Majorian was one of the last emperors to make a concerted effort to restore the Western Roman Empire."

Can one person "make a concerted effort"? --Tokle (talk) 10:16, 2 August 2012 (UTC)
