Among the writers of history Theopompus of Chios1 began his history of Philip at this point and composed fifty-eight books, of which five are lost.

1 Of this work, the longest history published till then, two hundred seventeen fragments remain. Theopompus' admiration for Philip is reflected by Diodorus, who must have relied heavily on his account. For the contents of the Philippica see Beloch, Griechische Geschichte (2), 3.2.18-24.
