[2] Aelian fr. 115 Hercher (118a Domingo-Forasté). For Commodus see kappa 2007. 'Cleander' (who does not have his own Suda entry) is M. Aurelius Cleander, a Phrygian ex-slave who before his murder in 190 CE had risen to become praetorian prefect under Commodus. In the episode referred to here, as recounted by Cassius Dio, he is eliminating a predecessor in that office, Tigidius Perennis (Aelian or his source is wrong to call P. the prefect of Egypt).
