Zeev Rubin, in “The Conversion of the Visigoths to Christianity,” Museum Helveticum 38 (1981), pp. 34–54, has sustained this date and reaffirmed E. A. Thompson’s picture of the social situation of the Goths at this juncture of history. Rubin’s position is reported in the text following this note. I am grateful to Gideon Bohak of Princeton University for this reference.
