    That Tatian quote is in chapter 14 of his “Address to the Greeks” here: http://www.earlychristianwritings.com/text/tatian-address.html

    It’s in a somewhat confusing paragraph in which he apparently argues that demons will be punished more severely than men. In the previous chapter (13), he states his theory about the human soul. He had some sort of ECT-like view, I guess, though he denied the innate (or natural) immortality of the human soul.
