4. Scholasticus, an epigrammatist of the time of Justinian, as is clearly proved by the references in his epigrams to Domninus, who was prefect of the city under Justin I. (Ep. 5
), and to Julianus Antecessor (Ep. 6
). Reiske confounded him with the former epigrammatist of the same name (No. 2). The Medicean library contains a MS. tract περὶ ἀττικῶν ὀνομάτων
under the name of Theaetetus Scholasticus (Bandini, Catal.
vol. ii. p. 368); and Suidas (s. v. Οὐδὲν πρὸς τὸν Διόνυσον
) mentions a work on Proverbs (περὶ παροιμιῶν
) by a certain Theaetetus. (Brunck, Anal.
vol. ii. p. 514; Jacobs, Anth. Graec.
vol. iii. p.214, vol. xiii. p. 957; Fabric. Bibl. Graec.
vol. iv. p. 496.)
