a name borne by some of the ancient Persian Magians. (Diog. Laert. prooem. 2; Suidas, s. v. Μάγοι.)


a Greek poem on the interpretation of dreams (Ὀνειροκριτικόν

There is still extant under this name a Greek poem, consisting of 101 iambic verses, on the interpretation of dreams (Ὀνειροκριτικόν). The poem is a comparatively modern composition (not earlier than the fourth century after Christ), and the name of the author is perhaps an assumed one.


This is printed in Rigault's edition of Artemidorus, in the collections of Obsopoeus and Servais Galle, and in J. C. Bulenger, de Ration. Divinat. 5.5.

Treatise on the diseases of asses

Suidas (s. v.) also ascribes to the same author a treatise on the diseases of asses, and their cure.
