Cehronicon Scaligerianus

Cehronicon Scaligerianus (or Alexandrinum). Scaliger published this as an appendix to his edition of the Chraionon of Eusebius. The chronicle begins with Adam, and ends with the reign of Arcadius and Honorius. Internal evidence points to Alexandria as the place of its composition. Notwithstanding the blunders in its Greek translations, the use made by the compiler of writings not now extant renders it worthy of being consulted. He appears to have taken from apocryphal sources stories of the martyrdom of Zacharias, the father of John the Baptist, and of the miraculous preservation of Elizabeth and her infant, of the names of the wise men, etc.
