1. Of Nysa in Caria, was a son of Menecrates, and a pupil of the celebrated grammarian, Aristarchus. (Schol. ad Pind. Nem. 7.1; Strab. xiv. p.650.) He himself was a celebrated grammarian, and Strabo in his youth was a pupil of Aristodemus at Nysa, who was then an old man. It is not improbable that the Aristodemus whom the Scholiast on Pindar (Pind. I. 1.11) calls an Alexandrian, is the same as the Nysaean, who must have resided for some time at Alexandria.
