Ammonia'nus

Ἀμμωνιανός), a Greek grammarian, who lived in the fifth century after Christ. He was a relation and a friend of the philosopher Syrianus, and devoted his attention to the study of the Greek poets. It is recorded of him that he had an ass, which became so fond of poetry from listening to its master, that it neglected its food. (Damascius, apud Phot. p. 339a., ed. Bekker; Suid. s. v. Ἀμμωνιανός and Ὄνος λύρας.)
