Pi'nytus

Πινυτός), an epigrammatic poet, the author of an epitaph on Sappho, consisting of a single distich, in the Greek Anthology. (Brunck, Anal. vol. ii. p. 288; Jacobs, Anth. Graec. vol. ii. p. 264.) Nothing more is known of him, unless he be the grammarian of Bithynium in Bithynia, who was the freedman of Nero's favourite, Epaphroditus, and who taught grammar at Rome. (Steph. Byz. s. v. Βιθύνιον; Reimar. ad Dion. Cass. 67.14, p. 1113.)
