The list of consuls in the Chronicon Paschale
- from 336 to 30 B.C.


The Roman consuls for the years 290, 270, 237, 174, 141, and 32 B.C. are omitted. Also, the "dictator years" 333, 324, and 309 B.C. are ignored. An additional pair of consuls are inserted before 296 B.C.

As a result, the list of consuls gradually drifts out of step with the Olympiad years. The Chronicon Pachale presents the following equivalences between Olympiad years, Romans consuls, and Egyptian kings:
Olympiad 111.1 ( 336 ) Consuls: Camillus and Munius ( 338 ) Arsiochus, year 1 ( ? )
Olympiad 112.2 ( 331 ) Consuls: Albinus [II] and Cossus ( 332 ) Dareius, year 2 ( ? )
Olympiad 114.2 ( 323 ) Consuls: Longus and Ceratanus ( 323 ) Ptolemy I, year 4 ( 321 )
Olympiad 117.4 ( 309 ) Consuls: Muso [II] and Rullus [II] ( 308 ) Ptolemy I, year 18 ( 307 )
Olympiad 121.1 ( 296 ) Consuls: Claudius and Violens ( 296 ) Ptolemy I, year 31 ( 294 )
Olympiad 122.3 ( 290 ) Consuls: Maximus [III] and Muso ( 289 ) Ptolemy I, year 37 ( 288 )
Olympiad 127.2 ( 271 ) Consuls: Gallus and Pictor ( 269 ) Ptolemy II, year 16 ( 269 )
Olympiad 135.2 ( 239 ) Consuls: Claudius and Varus ( 236 ) Ptolemy III, year 10 ( 237 )
Olympiad 150.4 ( 177 ) Consuls: Albinus and Benas ( 173 ) Ptolemy VI, year 5 ( 176 )
Olympiad 158.4 ( 145 ) Consuls: Scipio and Lacaeus ( 140 ) Ptolemy VIII, year 2 ( 144 )
Olympiad 185.4 ( 37 ) Consuls: Octavianus Augustus [II] and Corvilius ( 31 ) Cleopatra, year 16 ( 36 )
