Valerius Antias

Antias
From its sixth book onward, Livy's History of Rome used Quadrigarius and Valerius Antias as his major sources.
He was probably a younger contemporary of Quintus Claudius Quadrigarius and lived in the times of Sulla, although some scholars believe that he was a contemporary of Julius Caesar and wrote his work after 50 BC, because he seems to have been unknown to Cicero, who does not mention him in his enumeration of famous historians.
