On the jurist Tribonian see generally OCD(4) s.v., a summary of Honoré 1978 by its author. Here in the Suda there is a purported distinction between tau 951 ('Tribounian' [sic], quaestor under Justinian), tau 956 (Tribonian the Hellenised Macedonian), and the present entry. In fact they all concern the same individual. The present entry focuses on the literary (non-juristic) works attributed to him.
