9. Of CYRENE, a Greek grammarian, who is often cited by other Greek grammarians, as by the Scholiast on Euripides (Eur. Orest. 1485
), in the Etymologicum M. (s. v. βωμολόχοι
), and by Suidas (s. vv. ά̀ντικρυς
, and βδελύσσω
). From Athenaeus (xi. p. 487) it would seem that he wrote a work on drinking vessels (ποτήρια
), and if we may believe the authority of Natalis Comes (3.16-18, 9.5), he also wrote a work on the gods, but this may possibly be a confusion of Apollodorus of Cyrene, with the celebrated grammarian of Athens. (Heyne, ad Apollod.
pp. 1174, &c., 1167.)
