5. Of Alexandria, a distinguished grammarian, frequently cited by the scholiasts and other writers.

Respecting the time of Lysimachus the Alexandrian, we only know that he was younger than Mnaseas, who flourished about B. C. 140.


Νόστοι and συναγωγὴ Θηβαϊκῶν παραδόξων

The scholiasts and other writers mention his Νόστοι and his συναγωγὴ Θηβαϊκῶν παραδόξων. (Ath. iv. p. 158c. d.; Schol. ad. Apoll. Rhod. 1.558, 3.1179, ad Soph. Oed. Col. 91, ad Eurip. Andr. 880, Hec. 892, Phoen. 26, Hipp. 545, ad Pind. Pyth. 5.108, Isth. 4.104, ad Lycoph. 874; Apost. Prov. 17.25; Plut. de Fluv. 18; Hesych. s. n. Σκῦρος.)


He is perhaps also the author of the Αἰγυπτιακα cited by Josephus (c. Ap. 1.34, 2.2, 14, 33), and perhaps may even be identified with Lysimachus of Cyrene, who wrote περὶ ποιηΤῶν. (Paroleg. ad Hes. Opp. p. 30; Tzetz. Chil. 6.920.)

περὶ τῆς Ἐφόρου κλοπῆς

A writer of the same name is mentioned by Porphyry as the author of two books, περὶ τῆς Ἐφόρου κλοπῆς. (Euseb. Praep. Exang. 10.3.)
