1. Agrammarian of Adramyttium in Mysia, exercised the profession of a teacher at Gargara in the Troad--a hard lot, which Aratus, who appears to have been contemporary with him, bemoans in an extant epigram.
He is probably the same whose voluminous common-place book (παντοδαπὰ ἀναγνώσματα
) is quoted by Stephanus of Byzantium (s. v. Πασσαργάδαι
). Schneider would refer to him the epigrams under the name of Diotimus in the Anthology.
