Justin is the author of a compendium of the Philippic histories (Epitoma Historiarum Philippicarum in Latin), which he presents in the preface as a collection of the most important and interesting passages of the expansive book entitled Historiae philippicae et totius mundi origines et terrae situs, written by Trogus Pompeius during the reign of Augustus (lost today).
The two historical periods the best preserved by Justin, one-third or half of the contents of Trogus Pompeius, are the Greco-Persian Wars in book II and Alexander the Great in books XI and XII.
