Wikisource?[edit]

It looks like existing translations of the chronicle are old enough to be copyright expired. Is the Chronicle available on Wikisource? If not- how can I help digitize them? I have access to a large research library. Thanks.


"Theophanes would hold several offices under this patron (Constantine V Copronymus)"[edit]

How is this possible if he was only 15-17 years old when this emperor died? Did these offices consist of mowing the lawn and delivering the Sunday paper? Is there a source for this claim? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 64.189.24.95 (talk) 02:34, 27 October 2012 (UTC)
