Ulpianus, of Ascalon

Ulpianus of Ascalon taught rhetoric at Emesa and Antioch (1) in the reign of Constantine (324–37 ce) and wrote a number of declamations and rhetorical works (no longer extant). He is the reputed author of scholia to eighteen speeches of Demosthenes(2); they are of little independent value. He was a teacher of Libanius and *Proaeresius.
