"Candidus Isaurus, a Byzantine historian, a native of Isauria....His history of the Byzantine empire, in three books, which is now lost, began with the election of the emperor Leo the Thracian....A summary of its contents is preserved in Photius (cod. 79)....." from Smith's Dictionary of Greek and Roman Biography and Mythology, 1867, vol I, pg. 594.
The first TLG is an older one, since this is a fragmentary historian known only from the works of Photius, the TLG eliminated an id for this author and this fragment is contained in the work, Bibliotheca, of Photius, I, Saint, Patriarch of Constantinople, ca. 820-ca. 891
