Ecclesiastical history by Socrates Scholasticus
Book II, Chapter XXXIII
Chapter XXXIII.—Of the Jews inhabiting Dio-Cæsarea in Palestine.

About the same time there arose another intestine commotion in the East: for the Jews who inhabited Dio-Cæsarea in Palestine took up arms against the Romans, and began to ravage the adjacent places. But Gallus who was also called Constantius, whom the emperor, after creating Cæsar, had sent into the East, despatched an army against them, and completely vanquished them: after which he ordered that their city Dio-Cæsarea should be razed to the foundations.
