Deme'trius

40. Of TROEZENE, a Greek grammarian, who is referred to by Athenaeus. (i. p. 29, iv. p. 139.) He is probably the same as the one who, according to Diogenes Laertius (8.74), wrote against the sophists.

Besides these, there are some writers of the name of Demetrius who cannot be identified with any of those here mentioned, as neither their native places nor any surnames are mentioned by which they might be recognized. For example, Demetrius the author of "Pamphyliaca." (Tzetz. ad Lycoph. 440), Demetrius, the author of "Argolica" (Clem. Alex. Protrept. p. 14), and Demetrius the author of a work entitled περί τῶν κατ᾽ Α῎ιγυπτον. (Athen. 15.680.) In Suidas (s. v. Ἰούδας), where we read of an historian Democritus, we have probably to read Demetrius.
