*Se/ctos), Greek writers.

1. AFRICANUS or LIBYCUS (Λίβυς), a philosopher mentioned by Suidas and Eudocia (s. v.), who ascribe to him Σκεπτικὰ ἐν βιβλίοις ί, Sceptica in Libris decem, καὶ πυρρ́ώνεια, Pyrrhonia, thus evidently confounding him with Sextus Empiricus; or, which is more probable, speaking altogether of Empiricus, but under an unusual and probably inaccurate name. [SEXTUS EMPIRICUS.]
