2. A Greek historian who lived previous to the Christian aera.


Eupolemus wrote several works on the history of the Jews, of which the following are known by their titles :

1. Περὶ τῶν ἐν τῇ Ἰουδαίᾳ Βασιλέων

(Clem. Alex. Strom. i. pp. 146, 148.)

2. Περι τῆς Ἠλίου προφητείας

(Joseph. c. Apion. 1.23)

3. Περὶ τῶν τῆς Ἀσσυρίας Ἰουδαίων.

Eupolemus not Jewish

It has been supposed that Eupolemus was a Jew, but from the manner in which Josephus (l.c.) speaks of him, we must infer that he was not a Jew.
