Eudoxia wife of the emperor Arcadius, was born in the year 375, and was married to Arcadius in 395. She was the mother of Theodosius II, or the younger. Her name is mentioned here on account of her difficulties with Chrysostom. She used her influence for the banishment of Clilysostom, against whom her hatred was incited by the unsparing attacks which he made against all evil-doers, and especially, it is said, by his declaration that she was "a new Herodias thirsting after the blood of John." She died in 404. — Wetzer und Welte, Kirchen-Lexikon, 3:736: Hoefer, Nouvelle Biog. Generale, 13:687; Gibbon, Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire (Harper's ed.), 3:343 et sq.
