1.) What do the numbers next to authors names mean?
2.) How can I find out what year the primary source was actually written, required for my bibliography.

Now I know the answer seems obvious but look. Here are examples. Under each source is the authors name

E.g.

Frederick Barbarossa's Crusade and his death (source)
Ibn Al-Athir, XII, 30-2 (author)

What do the numbers mean? 1130-2? So I guess thats when he wrote it but seems abit late to write that source imo. and its 1 year before his death?

Anyway another example adds further confusion

Saladin's illness and Death
Baha AD-Din (361-9)

Also im pretty sure it isn't page numbers
