Another possible testimony to Magnus is found in Suda A 2094.
According to Mendelssohn and Klein, Zosimus used Magnus on Julian's expedition (Mendelssohn 1887: xxxix-xlvii; Klein 1914: 58-134). Thompson (1947) and Paschoud (1979: xlix-l) argue against this idea. Fornara (1991: 15) argues that Malalas consulted an abridged form of Magnus' work. Colonna (1956: 73) argues that Magnus wrote a chronicle that went from the creation to his own time.
