Justinus was a Roman historian about whom nothing is known personally; based on his style of latin and references in the history, he most likely lived in the 2nd century CE (AD). Based on the earlier work of Trogus' regarding the history of Macedonia, this subsequent work represents one of the few sources of the original now lost. Although a history, both Trogus and Justinus took liberties with the accounting like many other classical historians.
