Son of Heraclides; of Pontus, from Heraclea in Pontus. Grammarian. He attended the school of the famous Didymus[1] in Alexandria. When he heard that Aper, the pupil of Aristarchus,[2] was achieving distinction in Rome, and that Didymus was widely denigrated, he wrote 3 books in sapphics or phalaecians, difficult to understand and posing serious difficulties in the questions to which they gave rise; he called them Leschai.[3] He took them to Rome and outshone Aper; he remained there as head of school under Claudius and Nero. He also wrote many epic poems.

C1 AD. See generally RE Herakleides(49); OCD4 Heraclides(5). [Not to be confused with eta 461 = OCD4 Heraclides(1).]
[1] delta 872: Didymus.
[2] alpha 3892: Aristarchus. Aper [RE Aper(6)], not otherwise attested, is possibly an error for Anteros, identified as a contemporary of Heraclides in alpha 2634. Anteros is described as a pupil of Apion Mochthus, not Aristarchus; but the reference to Aristarchus must be a mistake in any case (no pupil of Aristarchus, who died shortly after he left Alexandria in 145 BC, could still have been active under Claudius).
