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.
