Notes:
C5 BCE. FGrH 687; cf. OCD(4) s.v. 'Dionysius(5) of Miletus', by Klaus Meister.
The historicity of most of the works attributed to him here is controversial. Meister follows a more sceptical line than Adler (whose apparatus notes, and resists, attempts to reallocate titles to other Suda entries) and Jacoby. See also Drews (below) 20-22.
