Author Eunomius of Beroea
Greek Text Lietzmann, Apollinaris von Laodicea und seine Schule: Texte und Untersuchungen, 276-277.

Fragment 178: The Word, by becoming incarnate, has not become dual-natured or dual-willed, contrary to the tautonomy of the Egyptians and Cappadocians and Romans, but composite. For in becoming incarnate it was not increased with respect to the quantity of natures but it became a composite from both, giving up in no manner the peculiar and natural monad. If he did not submit to giving this up, clearly and certainly as they are of one, we proclaim with a loud voice that his nature and will and energy are one.

Fragment 179: To say in one word what is being sought, he is from self-moved things, for otherwise he is not a composite. For otherwise he brings in the peculiar will of each by nature, as sensible, energized according to the power in keeping with what is expected. Therefore how is there a composite if it is broken towards dissimilar energies by wills by nature opposite?
