JUSTIN°


JUSTIN° (Marcus Junian(i)us Justinus; third century C.E.), author of the Epitoma Historiarum Philippicarum, an abridgment of *Pompeius Trogus' "Universal History" and the main source for that work. Justin gives a very brief, error-filled summary of Jewish history, from its biblical beginnings into the Hasmonean period.
