3. An Alexandrian grammarian, known also by the Latin name of Minucius Pacatus, was the pupil of Heliodorus Metricus. His works, which were chiefly on the Alexandrian and Attic dialects, were held in high esteem, and are often quoted: a list of them is given by Suidas. He probably lived about the time of Augustus. 1 (Suid. s. v. Εἰρηναῖος and Πάκατος; Fabric. Bibl. Graec. vol. vi. pp. 170, 171.)

1 * In HELIODORUS, No. 2.1. the writer fell into the error of several preceding writers, in making Irenaeus and Minueius Paeatus distinct persons.
