1. Surnamed ARISTOPHANIUS, and also Pseudo-Aristophanius, from his being a disciple of the celebrated grammarian Aristophanes, of Byzantium at Alexandria. Artemidorus himself was, therefore, a contemporary of Aristarchus, and likewise a grammarian.


περὶ Δωρίδος and γλῶσσαι ὀψαρτυτικαί

He is mentioned by Athenaeus (iv. p. 182) as the author of a work περὶ Δωρίδος, the nature of which is not clear, and of λέξεις or γλῶσσαι ὀψαρτυτικαί, that is, a dictionary of technical terms and expressions used in the art of cookery. (Athen. 1.5, ix. p. 387, xiv. pp. (662, 663 ; Suidas, s. vv., Ἀρτεμίδωρος and Τιμαχίδας; Erotian in Λάσιον.)


Some MSS. of Theocritus contain, under the name of Artemidorus, an epigram of two lines on the collection of bucolic poems, which perhaps belongs to our grammarian. (Theocrit. p. 806, ed. Kiessling; Anthol. Graec. ix. n. 205.)
