Eutychius Proculus
(104 words)

[German version]

Latin grammarian of the 2nd cent. AD from Sicca Veneria in Africa. Teacher of  Marcus Aurelius (cf. SHA Aur. 2,3. 5), who elevated him to the proconsular career. His works are lost. It is unlikely that E. is identical with the (probably fictitious) grammarian Proculus, to whom SHA trig.tyr. 22,14 attributes an (even more probably fictitious) treatise with the title of De peregrinis regionibus.
