A Larissaean from Macedonia.[1] Rhetor. A pupil of Anaximenes of Lampsacus.[2] Being of a poetic inclination, he inserted a line after each line of the Iliad, and gave the composition the title Troicus: 'Sing, goddess, the anger of Peleus' son Achilles, which he conceived enraged over Chryses' daughter, and its devastation, which put pains thousandfold upon the Achaeans as they fought, when they made war on the Trojans without their lord, hurled in their multitudes to the house of Hades strong souls of men at Hector's hands, cut down by the spear.'[3] He also wrote a number of other works.

[2] [alpha 1989] Anaximenes.
[3] Homer, Iliad 1.1-3 (in Lattimore's translation), with Timolaus' added lines. For an Iliad with inserted pentameters see pi 1551.
