Anti'ochus of ALEXANDRIA

*)Anti/oxos), of ALEXANDRIA, wrote a work on the Greek poets of the middle Attic comedy. (Athen. 11.482.) Fabricius thinks that he is, perhaps, the same man as the mythographer Antiochus, who wrote a work on mythical traditions arranged according to the places where they were current. (Ptolem. Hephaest. 5.9; Phot. Bibl. 190.) Some writers are inclined to consider the mythographer as the same with Antiochus of Aegae or Antiochus of Syracuse; but nothing certain can be said about the matter.
