Marcus Junianius, Historiarum Philippicarum, XLIII

« Mediterraneans’ finally left their barbarous state and became civilized when they learned to cultivate olive trees and vineyards.»

      — Marcus Junianius, Historiarum Philippicarum, XLIII

Marcus Junianius (or Justin) was a historian who lived under the Roman Empire.  He is the author of “Historiarum Philippicarum libri XLIV”, a valuable historical summary of Provence history and all that remains of the voluminous 44 books long version called “Historiae philippicae et totius mundi origines et terrae situs” written by Pompeius Trogus which sadly has been lost in time.
