63. Of GAZA, a Greek writer (grammaticus), of whose date nothing is known, except that he lived after the time of the Christian poet Nonnus [NONNUS], who may be placed in or just before the reign of Justinian I. John of Gaza appears to have imitated the style of Nonnus.


He wrote:

1. Ἔκφραδις τοῦ κοδμικοῦ πίνακος τοῦ ἐν Γάζη ἐν Ἀντιοχείᾳ,

An iambic poem of 701 lines.


Published by Janus Rutgersius in his Variae Lectiones, 4to., Leyden, 1618, pp. 98, &c.

2. Περὶ Ἀρχαιολογίας,

extant in MS., and quoted by Du Cange in his notes to Zonaras.
