Quintus Curtius Rufus was a Roman historian who is generally thought to have written his works during the reign of Emperor
Claudius(41-54 AD). His only surviving work, "Historiae Alexandri Magni", is a biography of Alexander the Greatin Latinin ten books, of which the first two are lost, and the remaining eight are incomplete.
