C2 BCE. See generally J.S. Rusten in OCD(4) s.v. 'Dionysius(12)'; FGrH 32.
[1] On the E Aegean island of Lesbos.
[2] (Jacoby advocated 'or' rather than 'and' here, and also postulated a lacuna after 'Leather-worker'.) For 'Leather-arm' -- 'the unexplained nickname was doubtless meant to differentiate him from homonymous authors, but did not succeed' (Rusten) -- see also (e.g.) Athenaeus, Deipnosophists 12.515E (12.11 Kaibel).
[3] Here nominative, but better (as in some of the mss) accusative.
[4] Bernhardy reallocated the phrase 'for Parmenon' to delta 1176 and recast the remainder as follows: Fables, pertaining to the Expedition of Dionysos and Athena and Argonauts, in 6 books".
