John writer

"John - written by Papias of Hierapolis"

I thing this is the first time I have heard that John may have been written by Papias. I am familiar with Papias that that he was a collector of the oral tradition of the Apostles but i have never seen him refereed to as the writer of John. Can you give me your supporting authorities on this?
