*Sabi=nos), Greek, literary.

1. A sophist and rhetorician, who flourished under Hadrian, and wrote a work in four books, entitled Εἰσαγωγὴ καὶ ύποθέσεις μελετητικῆς ὕλης, and also Commentaries on Thucydides, Acusilaus, and some other authors, as well as other exegetical works. (Suid. s. v.) He seems to have been a native of Zeugma, as Suidas tells us that Sergius of Zeugma wrote an epitaph for his brother, Sabins the sophist. (Suid. s. v. Σέργιος.)
