Eupolemus was a priest & historian in 2 century BCE Jerusalem & a deputy of Judah Maccabee himself. Author sets forth detailed evidence attesting that the person whose Jewish History from Moses to Hasmoneans survives in relatively large fragments in the writings of the Church Fathers was identical with the Judaean envoy who in 161 BCE received a promise of support for the weakened Maccabean fighters.
