Three Didymoi from the Suda

“Didymos, also known as Atêios or Attios, a philosopher of the Academic school. He wrote two books of “Solutions to Believable and Sophistic Arguments” along with many others.”

Δίδυμος, Ἀτήϊος ἢ Ἄττιος χρηματίσας, φιλόσοφος Ἀκαδημαϊκός. Πιθανῶν καὶ σοφισμάτων λύσεις ἐν βιβλίοις β#. καὶ ἄλλα πολλά.

“Didymus, son of Didymus the fishmonger. He was an Aristarchian grammarian in Alexandria. He lived around the time of Antony and Cicero until the age of Augustus. He was called “Bronze-guts” because of his sedulousness for books: they claim that he wrote over three thousand, five-hundred books.”

Δίδυμος, Διδύμου ταριχοπώλου, γραμματικὸς ᾿Αριστάρχειος,᾿Αλεξανδρεύς, γεγονὼς ἐπὶ ᾿Αντωνίου καὶ Κικέρωνος καὶ ἕως Αὐγούστου· Χαλκέντερος κληθεὶς διὰ τὴν περὶ τὰ βιβλία ἐπιμονήν· φασὶ γὰρ αὐτὸν συγγεγραφέναι ὑπὲρ τὰ τρισχίλια πεντακόσια βιβλία.
