Herodian's History takes up two books in the Loeb series. Herodian was an equestrian from somewhere east of Rome (possibly Alexandria). That's basically all that is known about him except that he enjoyed a post in the civil service for most of his life. Cassius Dio is his only other major contemporary and his history cuts off at the reign of Alexander Severus. So he covers an extra twenty years. There has been a lot of criticism leveled at Herodian over the years for his sloppiness and inattention to detail, but once his history ends the following century is reconstructed from a patchwork of mostly late sources.

The Loeb Classical Library (LCL; named after James Loeb /loʊb/) is a series of books, originally published by Heinemann in London, today by Harvard University Press.

However, it was unique among his philanthropic interests since it was the one he founded and to which he lent his name.
