Two letters of Basil of Caesarea in Cappadocia – one dating back to 373 (ep. 151), the other to 374-375 (ep. 189) – addressed to the archiater sacri palatii Eustathius play a considerable importance in understanding the true identity of this Christian physician, his possible role at the court of the emperor Valens, and his function of mediation in the conflict between the supreme authority of the Arian Augustus and the religious leadership of the Orthodox bishop.
