Sort: Oldest first
A Roman historian; born about 19 B. C.; died after 30 A. D. He was a perfect or legate in the Roman army under Tiberius, and saw active service in Germania, Pannonia, and Dalmatia. His only extant work is the "Historiae Romanae", in two books; a compendium of universal, but more particularly of Roman, history. It is generally trustworthy, and valuable for confirmatory evidence.
