      Robert,
      As Latin has no definite article, it is up to the translator to choose
      between the two renderings. Most would choose as Ed has done because
      Pliny embraced a polytheistic culture. It is highly unlikely he thought
      Christ to be *the* God. He could, of course, have been representing the
      views of the Christians, but it would appear unlikely he should give
      their views that much respect. But you pays your money and you takes
      your choice.

      Best Wishes
