5. Of Alexandria, a grammarian.

He is supposed to have lived about the time of Constantine the Great.


His Commentary on the τέχνη γραμματική of Dionysius Thrax, as well as a work by him περὶ ὅρου, and other grammatical works, and also a Commentary on Theodosius himself, by Georgius Choeroboscus, exist in MS. in various libraries. A full account of these MSS. is given by Fabricius and Harless (Bibl. Graec. vol. vi. pp. 301, 308, 350).


His chief grammatical work, the commentary on Dionysius, amplified by the additions of later Byzantine grammarians, was published by C. G. Göttling, under the title of Theodosii Alexandrini Grammatica, Lips. 1822, 8vo. ; the Prooemium having been published before in Osann's Philemonis Grammatici quae supersunt, Berol. 1821, 8vo., and a portion of the work, under the title of Theodori Grammatici Alex. Canones de Declinatione Nominum et Conjugatione Verborum, by Imm. Bekker, in the third volume of his Anecdota, Berol. 1821, 8vo.
