Of another Heraclea, not the one in Pontus.[1] Grammarian. He too lived under the emperor Hadrian. The possibility has to be considered that he is the doctor from Albace Heraclea in Caria, since he was an expert on literature[2] in general; for I have not found it stated explicitly that he was from Heraclea in Pontus, though that is the opinion of some. His books are as follows: Miscellaneous Lexicon, alphabetically arranged, in 5 books - this is an epitome of Pamphilus' Lexicon in 405 books and of Zopyrion's;[3] Anthology of Epigrams; On rivers, harbours, springs, mountains [and] mountain ridges; On Rivers, alphabetically arranged, a description in epitome; Collection and Table of Cities throughout the World; and so on.

Probably identical (despite the compiler's doubts) with [delta 1139] Diogenianus, q.v.
[1] For Pontic Heraclea see [delta 1139] Diogenianus (and elsewhere). Stephanus of Byzantium lists more than twenty "other" cities of this name, but the lexicographer goes on to specify the one he means: Heraclea Albace, a.k.a. Heraclea by Latmus (OCD(4) Heraclea(2)), in Caria.
[2] Reading logios (with Toup) for logos; cf. delta 1174.
[3] Pamphilus' lexicon was a continuation of that of Zopyrion (RE Zopyrion(2)): see [pi 142] Pamphilus.
