An English translation of Asterius of Cappadocia, Homily 16 (On the Easter Vigil)

A twitter post alerts me to the release of the first English translation of Homily 16 by Asterius of Cappadocia (CPG 2815, no.16).  It is one of a collection of 31 homilies which is listed in the CPG, under the title Commentarii in Psalmos, which seems odd.  A translation of an extract from homily 11 is here.

The translation is by Nathan Porter, who has kindly made it available on here.  He suggests that it was delivered in the 330s.   His tweet included this lovely image:

Note that this is NOT the later author Asterius of Amasea, whose works begin in the CPG with 3260.
