|Personal Names of the Aristocracy in the Roman Empire During the Later Byzantine Era - A Note on Dates|
Articles > Names
The dates given are by no means the earliest possible dates. Rather,
they are the earliest date that the name appears in the source I used.
Even at that, the date is rarely a birth date. Usually the reference is
some letter or legal document known to have been written in the middle
of that person's life, or eulogical comment marking that person's death.
Names gleaned from seals are still harder to pinpoint, and will generally
be given in terms of centuries. Dates given in parentheses are known by
me to have existed during the given time, but are awaiting confirmation
from a citable source. Similarly, those with no dates are given in the
listed source, but without an afixed date.
