), an historian and chronographer, is called by the writer of the Alexandrian chronicle (p. 90), who quotes some things from him respecting Danae and Perseus, ὁ σοφώτατος ἱστορικός καὶ χρονογράφος
He is also mentioned by Joannes Malala (vol. i. pp. 39, 326, 340) and by Hieronymus in the Chronicle of Eusebius; and Scaliger, in his notes upon this passage (p. 205), has conjectured, that he may be the same as the Brutius Praesens whose daughter, Brutia Crispina, married L. Aurelius Commodus, the son of M. Aurelius but this is quite uncertain. (Vossius, de Hist. Graec.
