2. Of ASCALON, a Greek grammarian frequently referred to by Athenaeus, who quotes the 108th book of a work of his, entitled λέξεων συναγωγή
. (Athen. 7.329
, ix. p. 410, xi. p. 481, xiv. p. 658; comp. Schol. ad Hom. Il.
9.90, 10.252; Eustath. ad Hom. Il.
23.230, p. 1297.)
This work may be the same as the one πεπ́ὶ τῶν ξένως είημένων λέξεων κατὰ στολχεῖον
(Phot. Bibl. Cod.
156), which seems to have been only a chapter or section of the great work. Another work of his bore the title περὶ Ἀντιφάνους καὶ περὶ τῆς παρὰ νεωτὲρολς κωμικοῖς ματτν́ης
