Demo'stratus

4. A Roman senator, who wrote a work on fishing (ἁλιευτικά in twenty-six books, one on aquatic divination (περὶ γῆς ἐνύδρου μανρτικῆς), and other miscellaneous works connected with history. (Suid. s. v. Δαμόστρατος; Aelian, Ael. NA 13.21, 15.4, 9, 19.) He is probably the same person from whose history, meaning perhaps a natural history, Pliny quotes (H. N. 37.6), and the same also as Demostratus of Apameia, the second book of whose work "On Rivers" (περὶ ποταμῶν) Plutarch quotes. (De Fluv. 13; comp. Eudoc. p. 128; Phot. Bibl. Cod. clxi.; Vossius, de Hist. Graec. pp. 427, 428, ed. Westermann.)
