Parmeniscus

3. A grammarian and commentator, of whom we have fragments and notices in the Schol. Hom. Od. δ#. 242, Il. θ#. 513, λ#. 424; Eustath. ad Il. ii. p. 854; Schol. Eur. Med. 10, 276, Troad. 222, 230, Rhes. 524; Et. Mag. s. v. Ἄρεω; Steph. Byz. s. v.. Ἄλος, Ἔφυρα, Φθία. Hyginus, when speaking (Poet. Astron. 2.2, 13) of his history of the stars, probably refers to a lost commentary on Aratus. Varro (de L. L. 10.10) refers to him as making the distinctive characteristics of words to be eight in number. (Fabric. Bibl. Grtec. vol. i. p. 518, vol. vi. p. 375; Vossius, De Hist. Graec. p. 481, ed. Westermann.)
