Very misleading article[edit]

This article is extraordinary misleading in whom Niketas Choniates was. He was a top government official for one of the ruling families of Constantinople and the Byzantines - that is his cause for the proximity to the events prior to the 1204 C.E. destruction of Constantinople and his first-hand accounts of all of these events. He is an insider to Byzantine history, but he is a historian after the fact... Did any of the contributors to this article actually read the text that he is famous for writing? It doesn't appear that they have... Stevenmitchell (talk) 18:09, 2 June 2014 (UTC)

The article is sparse and needs work, but I fail to see anything "extraordinary misleading". Nothing that you wrote above contradicts the article in the slightest. Constantine 18:50, 2 June 2014 (UTC)
I can't see anything misleading either, but, Steven, by all means improve and extend the text. It's true that his notability in his lifetime, and his notability now, have different causes. (I guess that's true of some other people.) Is that the point you're making? Certainly, say it in the article! Andrew Dalby 08:38, 3 June 2014 (UTC)
