Ancient Source Socrates, HE 2.22.3b-4

Athanasius and Paul are here with me; and I am quite satisfied after investigation, that they are persecuted for the sake of piety. If, therefore, you will pledge yourself to reinstate them in their sees, and to punish those who have so unjustly injured them, I will send them to you; but should you refuse to do this, be assured that I will myself come there and restore them to their own sees in spite of your opposition.
