Marcus Junianus Justinus Frontinus, Roman historian of the second and third centuries, was born in Narbonne Gaul. His only known work, this one offered here, is Epítome de las Historias filípicas de Pompeyo Trogo (in Spanish). It’s believed that it was written in Rome because of a section in the preface where Justin writes that he had composed the work ‘during the free time I enjoyed in the city’.
It’s divided into forty-four books, with the addition of a preface. Each of these books focuses on an aspect of the Greek world and history, with a specific focus on Alexander the Great, his rise to power, and the events that occurred after his death. The Epítome also provides an account of Alexander's death, attributing it to Antipater. Considering the immorality of his behaviour, he took it upon himself to poison him.
