Comment: Iohannes received a monument from emperor Valentinianus II, Theodosius and Arcadius, which stands at the curia athletarum, the building allocated to the athletic guild of Rome, near the bathouse of Trajan. This suggests the popularity of Greek sports endured well into the 4th century, despite the adoption of Christianity as state religion (Gouw).
