Dioti'mus

*Dio/timos).

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. See below. (Anthol. i. p. 253; Jacobs, ad loc.; Macr. 5.20; Steph. Byz. s. v. Γάργαρα; Fabric. Bibl. Graec. vol. iii. p. 561, iv. p. 473.)
