2. An Alexandrian grammarian, commonly called the younger (ὁ νέος
) : he taught at Rome, and wrote, according to Suidas (s. v. Δίδυμος
, 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.)
