Maximus (Bishop of Zaragoza)
He assisted at the Councils of Barcelona in 599 and Egara in 614, held the Second Council of Zaragoza, against Arianism, in 592, and signed a decree of Gundemar of 610. It has been theorized that he wrote the Chronicles of Zaragoza, a history of that time surviving via a 16th century manuscript copy, because Isidore of Seville notes that Maximus had written on history. However, Collins (1980) and Johnson (1993) argue that the Chronicles were not the work of a single author.
