Euphratas the Eunuch

III/IV Centuries
A character in many of the vitæ of Sts. Constantine and Helen but not well-attested in contemporary records. A Christian, he is supposed to have played a key role in the Emperor's understanding of the vision at the Milvian Bridge. He is also credited with tremendous engineering feats in the building of Constantinople, and in particular of its subterranean tunnel and sewer system.

Under construction --- far from complete! Read with caution.
