Suspicion fell upon Theodora of a love affair with one of her servants...Wishing to refute the charge (though, if report was true, madly in love with the man) for the moment made up her mind to have him cruelly flogged for no reason at all. What happened to him after that we have no idea, nor has anyone seen him to this day. For if she chose to conceal anything that was going on, that thing remained unspoken and no reference was ever made to it.
