Note 018
From Chapter 12 of the Decline & Fall

Eutropius [9, c. 10] and Aurelius Victor [c. 36] only say that he died; Victor Junior adds, that it was of a fever. Zosimus [i. 63, p. 55] and Zonaras [xii. c. 28] affirm that he was killed by the soldiers. Vopiscus [Tacitus. c. 13] mentions both accounts, and seems to hesitate. Yet surely these jarring opinions are easily reconciled.
