Certain Greek historians who lived under the Eastern empire
between the sixth and fifteenth centuries. They may be divided into
three groups:- (1) Those whose works form a continuous history of the
Byzantine empire, from the fourth century to the conquest of
Constantinople by the Turks; (2) general chroniclers who wrote
histories of the world from the oldest period; and (3) writers on Roman
antiquities, statistics, and customs.
