    from

    Are these sentences correct:

    1-He had an interest in the Greek philosopher Plotinus, from the third century BC.
    2-I was talking on the phone with Jurgen, from Germany.
    (Meaning: I was talking to the phone to Jurgen, who is from Germany)

    I think the second one might be used in informal conversation but it is not really correct.

    Both sentences are correct.
