Justus of Tiberias
In Photius, Bibliotheca

Josephus' Arch-Enemy

A Chronicle of the Kings of the Jews in the form of a genealogy, by Justus of Tiberias.

"He came from Tiberias in Galilee, from which he took his name.  He begins his history with Moses and carries it down to the death of the seventh Agrippa of the family of Herod and the last of the Kings of the Jews.  His kingdom, which was bestowed upon him by Claudius, was extended by Nero, and still more  by Vespasian.   He died in the third year of Trajan, when the history ends. Justus' style is very concise and he omits a great deal that is of utmost importance.  Suffering from the common fault of the Jews, to which race he belonged, he does not even mention the coming of Christ, the events of his life, or the miracles performed by Him.  His father was a Jew named Pistus; Justus himself, according to Josephus, was one of the most abandoned of men, a slave to vice and greed.   He was a political opponent of Josephus, against whom he is said to have concocted several plots; but Josephus, although on several occasions he had his enemy in his power, only chastised him with words and let him go free.   It is said that the history which he wrote is in great part fictitious, especially where he describes the Judaeo-Roman war and the capture of Jerusalem. " (English by J.H.Freese, The Library of Photius, vol. I, SPCK, London (1920).

If his works are lost than how in the world would anyone know! It's the old ploy make an enemy of thyself to lift oneself up. Josephus is probably Justus
