Dexippus in Harpers Dictionary of Classical AntiquitiesP. Herennius, a Greek historian and rhetorician, born in Attica in the third century A.D. He held high office in Athens, and in the year 262, when the Goths invaded Greece, distinguished himself against them. He died about A.D. 280. Photius gives some account of three historical works by Dexippus-a history of Macedonia from the time of Alexander the Great; a general chronological history from the earliest times down to the year A.D. 268; and, finally, an account of the wars with the Goths in which Dexippus had himself fought. The fragments of these works, which are fairly numerous, are included in the collection of Scriptores Historiae Byzantinae.
