Note 154
From Chapter 16 of the Decline & Fall

Lactantius only calls him

quidam, etsi non recte, magno tamen animo, etc., M. P. c. 13.

Eusebius (1. viii. c. 5) adorns him with secular honours. Neither have condescended to mention his name; but the Greeks celebrate his memory under that of John. See Tillemont, Memoires Ecclesiastiques, tom. v. part ii. p. 320.
