Sima Zhen

Sima Zhen (simplified Chinese: 司马贞; traditional Chinese: 司馬貞; pinyin: Sīmǎ Zhēn; Wade–Giles: Szuma Chen, 679 - 732), courtesy name Zizheng (子正), was a Chinese historian born in what is now Jiaozuo, Henan during the tang dynasty.

Sima Zhen was one of the most important commentators on the Shiji. His commentary is known as the Shiji Suoyin (史記索隱), which means "Seeking the Obscure in the Grand Scribe's Records".
