Note 053
From Chapter 13 of the Decline & Fall

If we give credit to the younger Victor [Epit. 41], who supposes that in the year 323 Licinius was only sixty years of age, he could scarcely he the same person as the patron of Tiridates; but we know from much better authority (Euseb. Hist. Ecclesiast. 1. x. c. 8) that Licinius was at that time in the last period of old age: sixteen years before, he is represented with grey hairs and as the contemporary of Galerius. See Lactant. c. 32. Lucinius was probably born about the year 250.
