Author(s): Pagani, Lara
Entry Version: This is the English version of this article translated by Patrick Hogan. The original Italian version was written by Lara Pagani and first published on 20/02/2006. Here is the Italian version of this entry. Grammarian: Name: Xenon | Ξένων Identity: BNP Place of Origin: ? Date: 3rd-2nd c. BCE ↓ To Source List Biography: Xenon’s place in the critical stream of the Alexandrine Χωρίζοντες1 is attested by a passage of Proclus’2 Vita Homeri3 (p. 102, 2-6 Allen: T 1 Montanari = Hellanikos T 2 Montanari), which associates Xenon with Hellanicus4 in doubting Homeric5 authorship of the O…

(603 words)

Author(s): Pagani, Lara
Entry Version: This is the English version of this article translated by Patrick Hogan. The original Italian version was written by Lara Pagani and first published on 17/03/2008 – 12/03/2010.

BCE? ↓ To Source List Biography: The grammarian Hermias is known from only one citation in the scholion of Herodianus1 on Il. 16, 2072; this fragment attests his attachment to the Cratetean3 school (Κρατήτ<ε>ιος) and can therefore suggest a dating between the 2nd and 1st c. BCE. His …

Data: ante 2°/3° sec. d.C.? ↓ Elenco delle fonti Biografia: Figura nota unicamente per la citazione di Ath. 14, 634d, che permette solo di fissare un terminus ante quem estremamente vago al più tardi all’inizio del 2°/3° sec. d.C.

Grammatico: Nome: Pythocles | Πυθοκλῆς Luogo di provenienza: ? Data: ? ↓ Elenco delle fonti Biografia: Nulla sappiamo di questo grammatico, noto per una sola attestazione negli scolî esegetici ad Il. 21, 18, dove egli pronuciava la sequenza ὁ δ’ ἔσθορε in modo che ὁ δέ costituissero un’unica parola: Pitocle intendeva che essa fosse impiegata in sostituzione della congiunzione καί, istituendo un parallelo con le forme ἠδὲ e ἰδέ,…

Here is the Italian version of this entry. Grammarian: Name: Euphranor [1] | Εὐφράνωρ Place of Origin: ? Date: ante 2nd c. CE? ↓ To Source List Biography: It is hardly plausible that the Euphranor cited in a note of the Herodian1 scholion ad Il. 14, 372a (taken up by Eustath. ad Il. 992, 55–60) should be identified with the celebrated painter and sculptor of Corinth2 (cf.
