I was just about to ask you "which Herod?" about the Severus (of Antioch?) quote, but I see you already caught and removed it.SteveM wrote:Note also that the crucifixion of Christ is said by a variety of sources to have taken place under the consulship of the two Gemini at Rome.

"Christ died when the two Gemini were consuls."
According to Tertulian:
"The Passion was finished when Rubelius Geminus and Fusius Geminus were Consuls."
