“Decree Regarding Jews” issued by Emperor Honorius and Theodosius and addressed to Praetorian Prefect Illyria [Roman Empire; Present-day Italy, Turkey]: “[…] We think that notice ought to be given to prevent them [Jews] from becoming arrogant, and, elated by their security, rashly commit some act against the Christian religion, by way of revenge.” [Researcher’s note: Although the earlier part of this decree is pro-Jewish, this part of the decree is clearly anti-Semitic.]
