Diogeniānus in Harpers Dictionary of Classical Antiquities

(Διογενειανός). A Greek grammarian of Heraclea. About the middle of the second century A.D. he made extracts, in five books, from the great collection of glosses compiled about a century before by Pamphilus. These extracts form the foundation of the lexicon of Hesychius (q.v.). A collection of proverbs made by him is preserved in an abridged form. See Lexicon.
