3. Of Elis, a Greek writer, who is referred to by Harpocration (s. v. Ἑλλανοδίκαι) as an authority respecting the number of the Hellanodicae. He is probably the same as the one mentioned by Tertullian (de An. 46) and Eusebius. (Chron. i. p. 37; comp. Syncellus, p. 370, ed. Dindorf.) An Aristodemus is mentioned by Athenaeus (xi. p. 495) as the author of a commentary on Pindar, and is often referred to in the Scholia on Pindar, but whether he is the Elean or Nysaean, cannot be decided.
