Ammonius (1), pupil and successor of *Aristarchus (2) (schol. Il. 10. 397; Suda, entry under the name), wrote besides a commentary on Homer (POxy. 2. 121), other works on the Homeric poems, e.g. a treatise on *Plato (1)'s borrowings from Homer ([Longinus], Subl. 13. 3), and essays in defence of Aristarchus' recension of the Homeric text (schol. Il. 10. 397); these formed a valuable source for *Didymus (1). For his commentary on Pindar (schol. Od. 1. 122 c) he used Aristarchus' work, but made independent additions (schol. Nem. 3. 16 b). The work on Aristophanes (schol. Vesp.947), sometimes entitled Κωμῳδούμενοι (schol. Vesp.1239), probably discussed the individuals attacked in Old Attic Comedy. He is not the author of the extant De adfinium vocabulorum differentia (ed. K. Nickau, 1966).
