  1. The soorces caw him "Tarasicodissa Rousombladadiotes", an for this reason it wis thocht his name wis Tarasicodissa. Houever, it haes been demonstratit that this name actually means "Tarasis, son o Kodisa, [comin frae] Rusumblada", an that "Tarasis" wis a common name in Isaurie (R.M. Harrison, "The Emperor Zeno's Real Name", Byzantinische Zeitschrift 74 (1981) 27–28).
