Pompey Trogus was a Gallo-Roman historian living during the first century BC. He is most remembered for his ‘Histories’ which discussed the origins of the world, establishment of world empires, and the rise and fall of military powers. Trogus discussed the parts of the world the Alexander the Great conquered, Ninus, the founder of Nineveh, the development of the Assyrian and the Macedonian Empires, as well as extensive coverage of the early Roman Empire.

 

In the centuries following Trogus, the Roman historian Justin edited these ‘Histories’ and compressed the enormous 44-volume work into a manageable tome with an added preface which explained that he attempted to collect the most important and interesting parts of Trogus’s ‘Histories.’
