Ζωΐλος). A grammarian, a native of Amphipolis, who flourished in the time of Philip of Macedon. He was celebrated for the asperity with which he assailed Homer (Ὁμηρομάστιξ), and his name became proverbial for a captious and malignant critic (V. H. xi. 10). See Spindler, De Zoïlo Homeromastige Qui Vocatur, 2 pts. (1888- 89).
