Note 050
From Chapter 18 of the Decline & Fall

The character of Dalmatius is advantageously, though concisely, drawn by Eutropius (x. 9 [5]).

Dalmatius Caesar prosperrima indole, neque patruo absimilis, haud multo post oppressus est factione militari.

As both Jerom and the Alexandrian Chronicle mention the third year of the Caesar, which did not commence till the 18th or 24th of September, A.D. 337, it is certain that these military factions continued above four months.
