Period covered:
Creation?-12th year of Anastasius (502/503)
Language:
Greek
State of Preservation:
Fragmentary
Genre:
  • Secular history (chronological history)
Remarks:
An additional fragment can be found in Nicephorus Callistus Xanthopoulos, Ecclesiastical history 14.57-58 (Patrologia Graeca 146/2, 1272-1274), copied from Evagrius. Treadgold (2007) suggests that Eustathius is a common source  of John Malalas and John of Antioch, which is unlikely.
