Acron, Hele'nius

a Roman grammarian, probably of the fifth century A. D., but whose precise date is not known.


Notes on Horace and Persius

He wrote notes on Horace, and also, according to some critics, the scholia which we have on Persius. The fragments which remain of the work on Horace, though much mutilated, are valuable, as containing the remarks of the older commentators, Q. Terentius Scaurus and others.


They were published first by A. Zarotti, Milan, 1474, and again in 1486, and have often been published since in different editions; perhaps the best is that by Geo. Fabricius, in his ed. of Horace, Basel, 1555, Leipzig, 1571.

Confusion with another Acron

Commentary on Terence

A writer of the same name, probably the same man, wrote a commentary on Terence, which is lost, but which is referred to by the grammarian Charisius.
