Phile'mon7. The author of a Λεξικὸν τεχνολογικόν.
Ὑπερέχιος, Λέων ; Tzetz. Chil. 10.305). The work of Hyperechius was entitled ἡ τοῦ Ἀλεξανδρέως Ὑπερεχίου ὀνομάτων τεχνολογία κανονικῶς συντεθεῖσα, and was arranged in eight books, according to the eight different parts of speech [HYPERECHIUS]. Philemon's lexicon was a meagre epitome of this work, the best parts of which he seems to have omitted : it is, however, not without its value in the department of literary history. It is often quoted in the Etymologicum Magnum. The part of it which is extant consists of the first book, and the beginning of the second, περὶ ὀνομάτων. Hyperechius lived about the middle of the fifth century of our era, and Philemon may probably be placed in the seventh.
