about

Gaius Sallustius Crispus, or "Sallust" (86BC - 35BC) was a Roman historian and politician, from a well-known plebian family. Sallust was a lifelong opponent of the old Roman Aristocracy throughout his career, and later a partisan of Julius Caesar.

Sallust is the earliest known Roman historian with surviving works to his name, of which we have The Catiline Conspiracy, The Jugurthine War (about Rome's war against the Numidians from 111 to 105 BCE), and the Histories (of which only a few scant fragments survive). Sallust was primarily influenced by the Greek historian Thucydides and amassed great (and ill-gotten) wealth from his governorship of Africa.
