People - Ancient Greece: Demetrius of Magnesia
Ancient Greek grammarian and biographer from 1st century BC.

Demetrius of Magnesia in Wikipedia Demetrius of Magnesia (1st century BC) was a Greek grammarian and biographer, and a contemporary of Cicero and Atticus.[1] He had, in Cicero's recollection, sent Atticus a work of his on concord, (Greek: περὶ όμονοἰας), which Cicero also was anxious to read. A second work of his, which is often referred to, was of an historical and philological nature, and treated of poets and other authors who bore the same name (Greek: Περὶ ὁμωνύμων ποιητῶν καὶ συγγραφέων).[2] This important work, to judge from what is quoted from it, contained the lives of the persons, and a critical examination of their merits.
