  2. ^ Otto J. Maenchen-Helfen. The World of the Huns: Studies in Their History and Culture, pp. 91–94, 104–105. Maenchen-Helfen demonstrates that the commonly reported date of 434 for Ruga’s death, based on the Gallic Chronicle of 452, is not credible, and that Theodoret’s dating of sometime after 435 is to be preferred.
