Aristides Quintilianus in Wikipedia
Aristides Quintilianus (Greek: Ἀριστείδης Κοϊντιλιανός) was the Greek author of an ancient musical treatise, Perė musikęs (Περί Μουσικῆς, i.e. On Music), who probably lived in the third century AD. According to Marcus Meibomius, in whose collection (Antiq. Musicae Auc. Septem, 52) this work is printed, it contains everything on music that is to be found in antiquity (except for Aristoxenus). (See Pauly-Wissowa, Realencyc. ii. 894.)
