Theophanes Confessor, The Chronicle of Theophanes Confessor. Byzantine and Near Eastern History AD 284-813, Cyril Mango, Roger Scott (Tr., Introduction and Commentary) (Oxford University Press, Reprinted 1999, Oxford 1999)
From the Preface: “The Chronicle that geos under the name of Theophanes Confessor (d. 818) is a major source for the history not only of the East Roman or Byzantine Empire, but also for that of the Near East after the Arab conquest. That is not to say that its value is uniform for the entire period it covers, namely from AD 284/5 to 813. Roughly it’s first half in terms of pages of text, from 284/5 to 602, is based on sources that are, by and large, available to us in one form or another, although occasionally Theophanes does yield items of information that cannot be found elsewhere. From AD 602 to 813, however, Theophanes is for us a primary source in the sense that the writings he utilized have been almost entirely lost.”
