And also Eusebius of Caesarea has written in this way and he has the same teaching about gods as both Paulinus and those secular writers. For he has written not that there is only God but that “the only true God is one.” Now Paulinus, the father of Asterius, learned from this and supposed that “there are younger gods.”
