Roman emperors Arcadius, Honorius, and Theodosius II decree that imperial office staff must avoid "tumultuous" public gatherings. Anyone who violates this order will pay a fine and risk losing their job. This decree is issued around the time there were problems involving John Chrysostom so this is probably an order to avoid getting caught up in the issue.

This new decree states:

"All members of imperial office staffs ar ordered to avoid participation in tumultuous gatehrings. If anyone with sacrilegious intent dares violate Our authority, they will be deprived of office and punished with fines." [CTh 16.4.4]
