English term or phrase:in threes and fours
Towards the end of his life in the 330s, Eusebius received a commission
from the Emperor Constantine himself. With Christianity now
a legal religion, churches had begun to spring up in the new capital,
Constantinople. Constantine wished to furnish them with reliable
copies of the Bible, and it fell to Eusebius to supply them. Fifty great
codices were sent to the Emperor IN THREES AND FOURS, using the imperial
cursus velox or state express cart service.
