2. An Alexandrian grammarian, commonly called the younger ( νέος) : he taught at Rome, and wrote, according to Suidas (s. v. Δίδυμος), πιθανά, περὶ ὀρθογραφίας, and many other excellent works. In a preceding article, however, Suidas attributes the πιθανὰ (πιθανῶν καὶ σοφισμάτων λύσεις) in two books to one Didymus Areius, an Academic philosopher, who lived at Rome in the time of Nero. (Comp. Euseb. Praep. Evang. 11.23; Eudoc. p. 135.)
