Justin's work covers the Hellenistic age and gives valuable information on such figures as Philip of Macedon and Lysimachus of Thrace. The second work is a collection of lives of Greek leaders of the 5th and 4th centuries B.C. by Cornelius Nepos, here called Aemilius Probus. Dibdin says that this edition was rare even in his day.
