Ancient source used Eusebius, Against Marcellus 1.4.
Modern edition M. Vinzent, Markell von Ankyra: Die Fragmente (Leiden, 1997).

Look, we are not so much troubled about Asterius if he felt compelled to write these kinds of things. Rather, what troubles us is that some of those who are considered leaders in the church, having forgotten the apostolic tradition and valued secular things more than divine things, dared to both write and teach these kinds of things, which are no less of an error than that of the aforementioned people.
