Extract

Aristonicus (2), son of Ptolemaeus, an Alexandrian grammarian (see alexandria (1)) of the Augustan age (Strabo 1. 2. 31). Much of his chief work—on the Aristarchan recensions of *Homer (see aristarchus (2))—is preserved in our scholia (cf. nicanor (2)). He also wrote On Ungrammatical Words, commentaries on *Hesiod and *Pindar, and On the Museum at Alexandria.
