Translated headword: Dionysios, Dionysius
Vetting Status: high
Son of Mousonios, a Rhodian or Samian, historian; he was also a priest of the shrine of Helios there.[1] [He wrote] Local Histories in 2 books; Description of the Inhabited World; ten books of Educational History.
I conjecture that Dionysios the Periegete[2] was from Byzantion, because of [sc. his mention of] the river Rheba[s].[3]

[1] This would seem to tip the scales in favor of Rhodes; cf. OCD(4) 655 s.v. Helios.
[2] OCD(4) 460 s.v. 'Dionysius(9)'; cf. under delta 1177.
[3] One of two known rivers called Rhebas (sic) flowed into the Black Sea at the town of the same name, NE of Byzantion.
