Ancient source used Eusebius, Against Marcellus 2.2. On Ecclesiastical Theology 1.17;2.4.
Modern edition M. Vinzent, Markell von Ankyra: Die Fragmente (Leiden, 1997).

For if the examination were only of his spirit, then the Word would rightly appear to be one and the same thing as God. But if the addition of the flesh to the Savior is examined, then the deity seems to be widened only with respect to activity, such that he rightly is indivisible because he is a unit.
