Subject: [b-greek] Eusebius

>>Q1. Can Eusebius's Greek be classified, as to Koine, Attic or whatever?
This may seem like an idle question but we are curious.<<

I read quite a bit of Eusebius as background for my M.A. thesis.  While I didn't
really think of it as the time, I think now I would classify his Greek as high
literary Koine (think Epictetus) with an Atticizing tendency.
