The paper discusses the identification of Ambrose’s father with the person named Uranius quoted in Codex Theodosianus XI 1, 5. A closer examination of the passage, however, seems indicate that its author, Constantius, referred to  the pars Orientis of the Empire, which was ruled by him. Therefore, Uranius cannot be identified with Ambrose’s father, who instead was active in the pars Occidentis as praefectus, attested in Trier in 339. So, the proposed identification of Ambrose’s father with Marcellinus (argued in «Aevum», 88, 137-66, by Pizzolato) remains unaffected.
