*There are various problems with the information given by Byrhtferth in this section of his work. In particular, he says that Cenred 2 came back from Rome, whereas the Liber Pontificalis states that both Cenred 2 and Offa 5 died in Rome. See @Lapidge 1979a, 'Byrhtferth and the Vita S. Ecgwini', in Medieval Studies, 41 (1979), pp. 331-53, at p. 344.
*The date of the journey is given in Bede.HE v.19, although Ecgwine 1 is not mentioned at all by Bede.
