Procopius, the historian of the reign of Justinian, was born at Cassarea. He accompanied Belisarius in his campaigns against the Persians, the Vandals, and the Ostrogoths, and wrote their story in his Historice. He then returned to Constantinople, and enjoyed great favour with the emperor, whose public works he described in his De AEdificiis, and of whose court he has left a dark picture in the Anckdota aut Historia Arcana. He died probably about 565.
