Σκύμνος). A native of Chios, who wrote a Periegesis, or description of the earth, in prose, and which is therefore different from a Periegesis in iambic trimeter which has come down to us, and which describes the coast of Europe from the Pillars of Hercules to Apollonia in Pontus. This latter work is dedicated to King Nicomedes, probably Nicomedes III. (B.C. 91-96) of Bithynia. It is edited by Meineke (Berlin, 1846); and by C. Müller in the Geographi Graeci Minores (Paris, 1841).
