There can be little doubt that the work to which Papias himself supposed this story to apply was the Gospel of Mark virtually as we know it.
It may be noted also that the same view of the origin of the Gospel of Mark appears to have been held by a contemporary of Papias, Justin Martyr.
In his Dialogue with Trypho (c. 106) he cites a fact about the name of Peter from "his Memoirs," and adds also another similar fact about the name given to the sons of Zebedee, just as they are stated in Mark iii.

According to Papias, Mark wrote after the death of Peter, i.e.
