Adria'nus

Ἀδριανός), a Greek poet, who wrote an epic poem on the history of Alexander the Great, which was called Ἀλεξανδριάς. Of this poem the seventh book is mentioned (Steph. Byz. s. v. Ἐάνεια), but we possess only a fragment consisting of one line. (Steph. Byz. s. v. Ἀστραία.) Suidas (s. v. Ἀρριανός) mentins among other poems of Arrianus one called Ἀλεξανδριάς, and there can be no doubt that this is the work of Adrianus, which he by mistake attributes to his Arrianus. (Meineke, in the Abhandl. der Belin. Akademie, 1832, p. 124.)
