1. In Morozov (1) on p. 314 in chapter I-I  wrote about eclipses description mentioned in
Philostorgii's church history (2), (5, 60):

"In time when Theodosii (II-nd) reached the youth age then in 19 July near eight hours Sun was eclipted so much that even stsrs had appeared, and after this disaster immeadiately the drought so much had appeared that deathness of people and many others. In that time when the Sun was eclipted the similar to rind Sun evidence (Sun corona by Morozov's opinion) had appeared and someone called it as cometa. But this what had appeared was in general unsimilar to cometa because of this light evidence was not long and was unsimilar to any star but was strong, it was the visible flame as same, wothout any star was upper it as shiner".

Hence is going about Sun eclipse 19 July in 8 hours in evening. This eclipse is comprehensively considered in the articles about eclipses mentiioned in Hydatii and then is saying about it in the second chapter and we shall limit the reproducing table from this chapter.

                    Lisbon           Roma          Constantinopol
-103/07/19  07:37 0.661  07:57 0.768  08:19 0.886
 418/07/19  10:06 0.967  10:47 1.046  11:18 0.985
 939/07/19  07:30 0.990  07:48 0.995  08:08 0.892

Hence we see that in Roma italian this eclipse was complete, in Constantinopol almost complete by this in Roma nearly at 11:15 at local time in Constantinopol nearly 13:00. Hence conclusion: the expression "near eight hours" its necessary to understand as eight hour after Sunrise.

It's also mentioned in Hydatii, Chronica gallicaChronica Paschale and Annales Chronograph. Veter.
