Saint Jerome

Saint Jerome (c. 347–420) (Eusebius Sophronius Hieronymus) was a Roman Christian priest and historian born at Stridon. His Chronicon was written around 380 in Constantinople, and is a latin translation of the chonological tables of second book of Eusebius of Caesarea's Chronicon, which was written in Greek. His list of kings starts with the Sixteenth Dynasty, omitting the first fifteen dynasties.
