(1) According to "Essai de liste générale des cardinaux. Les cardinaux du XIè siècle", Annuaire Pontifical Catholique 1927, p. 131, n. 2, the see of Labico or Lavicum, in the province of Rome, was erected in 313 and according to Gams, Series Episcoporum Ecclesiae Catholicae, had nine bishops between 649 and 1089. It was for some time a suburbicarian see like the one at Tusculum or Frascati, from which it depended and to which it was incorporated after 1090. Some of its bishops seemed to have been cardinals after Benedetto: Dodone in 1026; Giovanni in 1045; Pietro in 1055; Giovanni in 1067; Giovanni Minuto in 1080; and Bovo in 1090.
