In Morozov in (1) on p.403 in chapter IV-XX  is going about eclipse mentioned in Julius Capitolinos (2), (3, 45):

"And was the sign to emperor Gordian. In ninth day (is spoiled in nondiu) has occurred the eclipse of Sun, that became the night and nobody could do anything, not setting the lamp" .

Gordians (whole their was three) according to traditional history a rule in years 237-244. Look according to canon Krasilinikova, what eclipses existed in this period and write them in table 1.

                           Rome     Constantinopol
 237/04/12  16:51  0.864    16:45  0.832
 238/04/02                          07:44  0.637
 239/08/16                          14:34  0.678
 240/08/05  04:29  0.774    04:29  0.920
 241/01/29  15:50  0.848

Eclipses was an integer five, truth, nor one of them not in ninth day.

 Alas, but we can select enough greater amount of eclipses for such descriptions if suppose that Gordian ruled in other years.
