The Clementine Homilies by Unknown
Chapter XI.--Arrival of Appion and Annubion.
And as we were going to take our meals, some one ran in and said: |Appion Pleistonices has just come with Annubion from Antioch, and he is lodging with Simon.| And my father hearing this, and rejoicing, said to Peter: |If you permit me, I shall go to salute Appion and Annubion, who have been my friends from childhood. For perchance I shall persuade Annubion to discuss genesis with Clement.| And Peter said: |I permit you, and I praise you for fulfilling the duties of a friend. But now consider how in the providence of God there come together from all quarters considerations which contribute to your full assurance, rendering the harmony complete. But I say this because the arrival of Annubion happens advantageously for you.| And my father: |In truth, I see that this is the case.| And saying this, he went to Simon.
