A man of senatorial rank, called Florentinus, took Artemia for his wife, and had two chidren by her [...]. She [Artemia] ordered him [Nicetius] to be brought up with the greatest care in the knowledge of ecclesiastical learning. When his father [Florentinus] had died, Nicetius, although already a cleric, lived with his mother in the paternal house, working with his hands alongside the servants; for he understood that corporal temptations could only be suppressed by work and hardship.
