Greek Original:
Ἰωάννης, Φιλαδελφεὺς Λυδός. οὗτος ἔγραψε Περὶ μηνῶν βιβλίον ἕν: καὶ Περὶ Διοσημειῶν ἕτερον: καὶ ἄλλων τινῶν ὑποθέσεων μαθηματικῶν. προσομιλεῖ δὲ ταῦτα Γαβριηλίῳ τινὶ ὑπάρχῳ.
Notes:
This is Joannes Laurentius Lydus, born c.490. (The TLG Canon unhelpfully lists him under 'Lydus'.) The list of his works given here omits what is arguably the most important one, On the Magistrates of the Roman Republic.

[2] Prefect of Byzantium under Justinian. Besides the mentions of him by John (e.g. MMR 38 = 192), see Greek Anthology 16.32.
