51. Bishop Ambrose said: Palladius, do you give assent to read the rest of [the letter] of Arius?
Palladius said: Bring the auditors, let the stenographers of both sides come. You cannot be judges if we do not have the auditors and those who listen are not from both parties. We do not answer you.
Bishop Ambrose said: Who do you want to be these auditors?
Palladius said: There are many honourable people.
Bishop Sabinus said: After so many blasphemies you ask for the auditors?
Bishop Ambrose said: The priests shall judge the lay men, not the lay men the priests. But say what for what judges do you ask?
Palladius said: Let the auditors come.
Presbyter Chromatius said: Saving the priestly condemnation †and also of Palladius† as well in plenary they shall be read. [Text corrupted, probably lacunose]
