Publius Annius Florus, (flourished 2nd century ad, Africa—died Rome?), historian of Rome and poet, important as the first of a number of African writers who exercised considerable influence on Latin literature in the 2nd century. He was also the first of the “new-fashioned” poets of Hadrian’s reign, whose special characteristic was the use of lighter and more graceful metres than those. The Periochae are not the only summary of Livy's History: in the Egyptian town Oxyrhynchus, a similar summary of books and was found on a scroll of papyrus that is now in Great Britain. note However the Oxyrhynchus Epitome is damaged and incomplete. This leaves us with the Periochae as our most important tool to reconstruct the general scope of Livy's .

  Pompeius Trogus, a Romanized Gaul living in the age of Augustus, wrote a forty-four book universal history (The Philippic History) of the non-Roman Mediterranean world. This work was later abbreviated by M. Junianus Justinus. Alexander the Great's life has been examined in minute detail by scholars for many decades, but the period of chaos that ensued . It has been satisfactorily shown that for Books VII-IX, in which Roman history is carried down from the landing of Aeneas to B.C., his chief source was Dio, supplemented by Plutarch and a couple of quotations from Herodotus: We are justified, therefore, in recognizing as an epitome of Dio whatever remains after the exclusion of the portions.

His most important work, Extracts of History (Greek: Ἐπιτομὴ Ἱστοριῶν, Latin: Epitome Historiarum), in eighteen books, extends from the creation of the world to the death of Alexius (). The earlier part is largely drawn from Josephus; for Roman history he chiefly followed Cassius Dio up to the early third century.
