Hi Kathryn,

In the Reader text it tells you :

"Ce qui est sûr .....jusqu'à sa mort  -naturelle- en 335 ..."

Et la date de naissance?

CécileKwiziq team member

Il serait né à Rome en 280 d'après mes recherches ...donc environ, 55 ans.

Google is your friend.

Not in this case Chris! Google wasn't around then, and records weren't so accurate back then either apparently. His birth date appears to be "sometime after 280" or "the late 280s" and date of death might have been around 335 to 337. Which would have made him anywhere between 46 and 57 when he died. So not a real long life by modern day standards.
