M. Pompi'lius Androni'cus

was a Syrian by birth, and taught rhetoric at Rome in the former half of the first century before Christ, but in consequence of his indolent habits he was eclipsed by Antonius Gnipho and other grammarians, and accordingly retired to Cumae, where he composed many works. His most celebrated work was entitled Annalium Ennii Elenchi, but the exact meaning of Elenchi is a disputed point. The elder Pliny uses it to signify a list of contents to his work on Natural History. (Suet. de Ill. Gramme. 8.)
