Полное имя Диона Кассия в эпиграфических и нарративных источниках: проблемы реконструкции


According to M.A. Gowing, Dio’s agnomen Cocceianus was mistakenly ascribed to him by Byzantine authors, who confused the historian with Dio Chrysostom. Contrary to this point of view, the paper presents additional arguments in favour the version that Dio’s name appeared as the result of the marriage of Cassius from Nicea and the daughter of Dio Cocceanus from Prusa. Most probably, the full name of the author of “Roman History” was Lucius Claudius Cassius Dio Cocceianus.
