The younger; of Phoenicia; his father was Artemidorus. A pupil of the older Tyrannio;[1] this is why he was named Tyrannio (previously he had been called Diocles). He too was taken prisoner, during the war between Antony and Caesar,[2] and was bought by one Dymas, who was a freedman of Caesar. Then he was given to Terentia, Cicero's wife. He was freed by her, and was a sophist in Rome. He wrote about 65 books, including the following: On Homeric Prosody; On the Parts of Speech, in which he says that proper names are indivisible, and that appelatives can form the bases for derivatives, while participles cannot; On the Roman Dialect, that the Roman dialect is derived from Greek and not indigenous;[3] The Disagreement of Modern Poets with Homer; Exegesis of Tyrannio's Division of the Parts of Speech; Textual Criticism of Homer; Orthography.

C1 BC. See generally RE Tyrannion(3); OCD4 Tyrannio(2).
[1] [tau 1184] Tyrannio.
[2] 'Caesar' will be Octavian -- but the chronology does not seem to fit. Adler notes that Bernhardy doubted the transmitted name 'Antony', and she mentions A. Daub's suggestion that we should read 'Pompey'.
[3] The text is corrupt; I have translated the reconstruction in fr. 63 Haas.
