a Greek commentator on the Basilica (cited Basilica,
vol. vii. p. 787, ed. Fabrot). His date and history are uncertain, but he probably lived in the 10th or 11th century. Suarez (Notitia Basilicorum,

of the Basilica.

676, n. i.) Tigerström (Aeuss. Röm. Rechtsgesch.
p. 330) erroneously calls him Salomon
The names should be separated by a comma, for Salomon is a distinct scholiast (cited Basilica,
vol. iii. p. 361).
