Note 139
From Chapter 25 of the Decline & Fall

See in Ammianus (xxx. 1) the adventures of Para. Moses of Chorene calls him Tiridates; and tells a long and not improbable story of his son Gnelus, who afterwards made himself popular in Armenia, and provoked the jealousy of the reigning king (1. iii. c. 21, etc., p. 253, etc.). [Para is not the same as Tiridates, who was the father of Gnel, first husband of Pharandsem, the future wife of Arsaces, and the mother of Para.]
