Agroecius

(211 words)

Author(s): Gatti, Paolo (Trento)
[German version] Latin grammarian (on his erroneous identification with  Agrestius cf. [4. 13 f.]). As Bishop of Sens, he dedicated an Ars de orthographia to Bishop  Eucherius of Lyon ( c. AD 434 to c. 450); therefore he is classified chronologically in the middle of the 5th cent. Strictly speaking, it is not a proper orthographical treatise, but rather a listing of 138 differentiae, that have apparently been strung together without any didactic, logical or content-based criteria. The treatment of differentiae in orthographical works is, however, traditional. It goes back…

Eutychius Proculus

(104 words)

Author(s): Gatti, Paolo (Trento)
[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. Gatti, Paolo (Trento) Bibliography A. Kappelmacher, s.v. E. 1, RE 6, 1534f. Schanz/Hosius 3,174 A. R. Birley, Some Teachers of M. Aurelius, in: Bonner Historia-Augus…
