*)/Alkimos), a Greek rhetorician whom Diogenes Laertius (2.114) calls the most distinguished of all Greek rhetoricians, flourished about B. C. 309.


It is not certain whether he is the same as the Alcimus to whom Diogenes in another passage (3.9) ascribes a work πρὸς Ἀμύνταν. Athenaeus in several places speaks of a Sicilian Alcimus, who appears to have been the author of a great historical work, parts of which are referred to under the names of Ἰταλικὰ and Σικελικά.

Confusion with the rhetorician Alcimus

But whether he was the same as the rhetorician Alcimus, cannot be determined. (Athen. 10.44], xii. p. 518, vii. p. 322.)
