Codex Justinianus 1.11.1

The Emperor Constantius to Taurus, Praetorian Prefect: We have determined that the temples shall be immediately closed in all cities, and access to them forbidden to all, so that permission for further offending may be refused to those who are lost. We also wish everyone to abstain from sacrifices, and if any person should do anything of this kind, he shall be laid low with the avenging sword; and We decree that his property, after having been taken from him, shall be confiscated to the treasury, and that the Governors of provinces shall also be punished, if they have neglected to suppress these crimes.” – Codex Justinianus 1.11.1
