Eugraphius
(96 words)

[German version]

Latin grammarian and author of a Terence comm. that is also included with various Terence MSS. He may have lived in the 6th cent. AD: he used the Terence comm. of  Donatus [3]. The Commentum of E. mainly consists of notes of a rhetorical type, sometimes only of paraphrasing. In the Middle Ages E.'s name appears to have been unknown but there are traces of his comm. in the glossaries and scholia to Terence.
