Hermi'nus

*(Ermi=nos), a Peripatetic philosopher, a contemporary of Demonax (called by Porphyrius, Vit. Plot. 20, a stoic). He appears to have written commentaries on most of the works of Aristotle. Simplicius (ad Arist. de Caelo, 2.23, fol. 105) says he was the instructor of Alexander of Aphrodisias. His writings, of which nothing now remains, are frequently referred to by Boethius, who mentions a treatise by him, περὶ Ἑρμηνείας, as also Analytica and Topica. (Lucian, Demon. § 56; Fabric. Bibl. Graec. vol. iii. p. 495.)
