), the author of eleven epigrams in the Greek Anthology. From internal evidence his date is fixed by Jacobs about A. D. 551. The Scholiast derives his name from Barbucale, a city of Spain within the Ebro mentioned by Polybius and Stephanus.
The name of the city as actually given by Polybius (3.14
), Stephanus Byzantinus (s. v.
), and Livy (21.5
), is Arbucale (Ἀρβουκάλη
) or Arbocala, probably the modern Albucella.
