A Greek author who followed the Peripatetic philosophy. He composed in the fourth century B.C. an historical and allegorical explanation of Greek myths in several books. Of this work we possess only a short abstract, probably composed in the Byzantine Age, under the title On Incredible Tales (Περὶ Ἀπίστων). In former times it was a favourite school-book. It has been edited by Westermann in his Mythographi (Brunswick, 1843).


An Egyptian or Athenian Greek, a rhetorician, whose best-known work called Troica (Τρωι:κά) is frequently mentioned by the ancient grammarians.
