Lat. grammarian of the 1st half of the 4th cent. AD in Constantinople. He was the teacher of Charisius, who relied extensively on him in his Ars grammatica. C.'s lost work, which served as a Latin textbook for Greeks [1. 123], was influenced by Plotius Sacerdos. It may also have been used in the form of revised versions, by later authors, as e.g. Dositheus, Anonymus Bobiensis and Beda. Texts circulating under the name of ‘Cominianus’ during the Middle Ages should, however, be associated with his student Charisius.
