Περὶ τῶν παῤ Ὁμήρψ σχημάτων ῥητορικῶν, in two books. 2. Περὶ συντάξεως λόγου Ἀττικοῦ, in five books. 3. Περὶ τῆς καθ̓ Ὅμηρον ῥητορικῆς. 4. Περὶ τοῦ Ὁμήρου καὶ Πλάτωνος συμφωνίας. 5. Ποικίλης φιλομαθίας βιβλία β̓. 6. Βίοι τραγικῶν καὶ κωμικῶν. 7. Βιβλιακὴ ἐμπειρία, in three books (containing a list of books worth getting). 8. Ὡς μόνος Ὅμηρος τῶν ἀρχαίων ἑλληνίζει. 9.
