Justin (or Marcus Junianus Justinus Frontinus) was a roman historian who probably lived in the second century AD. He wrote an abridged version of a now disappeared historical work by Pompeius Trogus "Liber Historiarum Philippicarum" written a couple of hundred years earlier. Many editions of Justins work were subsequently published. This is a swedish edition.
