Joannes Kinnamos or John Cinnamus was a Greek historian. He was imperial secretary (Greek "grammatikos", most likely a post connected with the military administration) to Emperor Manuel I (1143-1180), whom he accompanied on his campaigns in Europe and Asia Minor. It appears that Kinnamos outlived Andronikos I, who died in 1185.
Kinnamos was the author of a history that covered the years 1118-1176, thereby continuing the Alexiad of Anna Komnene, and covering the reigns of John II and Manuel I, up until Manuel's unsuccessful campaign against the Turks, which ended with the disastrous Battle of Myriokephalon and the rout of the Imperial army. He was probably an eye-witness to the events of the last ten years that he describes.
Nikephoros Bryennios (or Nicephorus Bryennius), Byzantine general, statesman and historian, was born at Orestias (Orestiada, Adrianople) in the theme of Macedonia.
