Fragment number Vinzent 120
Klostermann 83
Rettb. 73
Ancient source used Eusebius, Against Marcellus 1.4.
Modern edition M. Vinzent, Markell von Ankyra: Die Fragmente (Leiden, 1997).

The apostle, however, writes these kinds of things about the faith of the Galatians, but Eusebius, is changing the apostle’s purpose. The apostle said, “My children, whom I am again giving birth to until Christ is formed in you” (Gal 4:19) for the sake of the aforementioned reason. But Eusebius accused the Galatians of “not having the correct teaching about God.” For he truly did give birth with sharp and piercing labor pain because he understood that the Galatians were not thinking about the worship of God in the way that he was, and they were not even speaking of “two essences and entities and powers and gods.”
