Ἀγαλλίς) of Corcyra, a female grammarian, who wrote upon Homer. (Athen. 1.14d.) Some have supposed from two passages in Suidas (s. v. Ἀνάγαλλις and Ὄρχησις, that we ought to read Anagallis in this passage of Athenaeus. The scholiast upon Homer and Eustathius (ad Il. 18.491) mention a grammarian of the name of Agallias, a pupil of Aristophanes the grammarian, also a Corcyraean and a commentator upon Homer, who may be the same as Agallis or perhaps her father.
