Dissen, Georg Ludolf

, a German classical scholar, was born near Göttingen, December 17th, 1784. He studied philology and philosophy at the university of his native city (1804-1808), and not long after receiving his degree was made Professor Extraordinarius at the University of Marburg, soon returning, however, to take the same office at Göttingen, where in 1817 he became Professor Ordinarius. Besides two valuable treatises —De Temporibus et Modis Verbi Graeci (Gött. 1809) and De Philosophia in Xenophontis de Socrate Commentariis Tradita (Marburg, 1812)—he published valuable editions of Pindar (1830), Tibullus (1831), and of the Oration on the Crown of Demosthenes (1837). His minor writings (Kleine lat. und deutsche Schriften) appeared in 1839 after his death, which occurred September 21st, 1837.
