I recommend expanding "Festus" to "Rufius Festus", to avoid confusion with the much earlier Sextus Pompeius Festus. I do not wish to make this edit myself, as I have no knowledge of whether in fact Rufius Festus made use of Enmann's hypothesized Ur-dokument. (talk) 22:57, 7 June 2008 (UTC)

Further recommended emendation.Edit

Furthermore: by Epitome de Caesaribus I suppose that the work attributed to Aurelius Victor is meant; I would omit the words "Epitome de Caesaribus"-- unless the author doubts that the work is by Victor?

The Epitome and Aurelius Victor`s Caesares are two different works; the author of the Epitome was an "Anonymus" in the late 4th century (cf. J. Schlumberger, Die Epitome de Caesaribus. München 1974), who also used the EKG. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:03, 4 July 2008 (UTC)
