  6. The earlier dates for Galerius' appyntment hae been argued for based on the suggestion that the appyntments o Constantius an Galerius war timed tae coincide (Barnes 1981, 8–9; Southern 1999, 146). Barnes (1982, 62) argues against a datin o 21 Mey 293 in Nicomedia oreeginatin in Seston, Dioclétien, 88ff., statin that the evidence adduced (the Paschal Chronicle 521 = Chronica Minora 1.229 an Lactantius, DMP 19.2) is invalid an confused. Lactantius is commentin on Diocletian an the place whaur Diocletian wis acclaimed, an that the "Maximianus" in the text is tharefore a later gloss; the Paschal Chronicle is nae authoritative for this period for events ootside Egyp, an mey simply be commentin on the day when the laureled image o the new emperors arrived in Alexandria. Potter (2004, 650) agrees that locatin the acclamation tae Nicomedia is false, but believes that Seston's ither evidence maks a strang case for a temporal lag atween the twa Caesars' acclamations.
