APPIAN OF ALEXANDRIA°


APPIAN OF ALEXANDRIA°
APPIAN OF ALEXANDRIA° (second century C.E.), author of a general history of Rome. Appian mentions the Jews and Jewish history in several places, especially in his books on Syria, Mithridates, and those dealing with the civil wars in Rome. Though he himself shared in the general apprehension during the Jewish uprisings in Egypt in 116 C.E., Appian shows no animosity toward the Jews.
