Nicknamed Ixion; grammarian; of Adramyttium.[1] He lived at the time of Caesar Augustus,[2] and spent his time in Pergamum. He got this nickname (according to some) because he was caught stealing gold leaf from the statue of Hera in Alexandria; others say that he robbed of its Euripidean aspirations the drama containing Ixion; others, that he quarrelled with his teacher Aristarchus,[3] just as Ixion tried to act ungratefully towards the gods who had bestowed favours on him.[4] He wrote a great deal: On -mi Verbs; On Antonyms; exegesis of Homer; likewise of Hesiod.
Greek Original:
Δημήτριος, ὁ ἐπίκλην Ἰξίων, γραμματικός, Ἀδραμυττηνός, γεγονὼς κατὰ τοὺς Αὐγούστου τοῦ Καίσαρος χρόνους: ὃς διέτριψεν ἐν Περγάμῳ. ἐπεκλήθη δὲ τοῦτο, ὡς μέν τινες, διότι λεπίδας χρυσᾶς κλέπτων τοῦ ἐν Ἀλεξανδρείᾳ τῆς Ἥρας ἀγάλματος ἐφωράθη, ὡς δὲ ἄλλοι, ὅτι ἀπεσύλησεν Εὐριπίδειον Φιλότιμον τὸ δρᾶμα ἔχον τὸν Ἰξίονα, ἕτεροι δέ, ὅτι τῷ διδασκάλῳ Ἀριστάρχῳ ἀντήρισεν, ὥσπερ ὁ Ἰξίων εὐεργετήσασιν αὐτὸν τοῖς θεοῖς ἀχαριστεῖν ἐπεχείρησεν. ἔγραψε δὲ πολλά: Περὶ τῶν εἰς μι ληγόντων ῥημάτων: καὶ ἄλλα περὶ ἀντωνυμιῶν: εἰς Ὅμηρον ἐξήγησιν, εἰς Ἡσίοδον ὁμοίως.
