Ep. 75 (21) was addressed to the emperor Valentinian II in January or early February 386 – or so we argue. Ep. 75a (21a), also known as Contra Auxentium, is the text of a sermon, which, if its heading is to be believed, was presented to the emperor Valentinian II, though its aggressive tone makes this most unlikely.
