↑Following earlier scholars, Matthews (1989: 8) suggested a hometown of Antioch on the Orontes based on the assumption that Ammianus was the recipient of a letter from a pagan contemporary, Libanius, to a certain Marcellinus; however Formara in 1992 argued that this letter must have referred in fact to a younger man and an orator newly arrived in Rome, rather than Ammianus, who had long been a resident in the City, and Barnes (1998: 57-58) solidified this stance in modern scholarship. However, many scholars remain convinced that Ammianus was a native of Antioch.
