Berosus, a Chaldean priest, lived in the time of Alexander the Great. He translated a history of Babylonia into Greek, from the Creation down to his own time. Only fragments of this work now exist, and these have been preserved to us in the pages of such writers as Josephus and Eusebius. They were first collected and published by Richter in 1825 in Germany.
