[2] Gaisford connected this material with Cassius Dio 73.17.1, the L.Vespronius Candidus who features in the imperial machinations of 193 CE (i.e. no colon here, but rather include the name in the quotation); however, as Adler says, it is perhaps better regarded as an overlooked fragment of Candidus the Isaurian historian of the fifth century CE, FGrH 748 (for whom cf. chi 245).
