Pompeius Trogus (First Century B.C.)

Trogus Pompeius, or Pompeius Trogus (trō’gus pom-pē’us). A Roman historian of the Augustan age. Drawing principally on Greek sources, he wrote a universal history from Ninus to his own time, which he called ‘Philippian Histories,’ because the fortunes of Philip of Macedon and his line formed the central point of the narrative: all that remains of its 44 books is the table of contents and some few fragments.
