Olympiodorus of Alexandria,

Resource Toolbox

a Greek monk, said also to have been a deacon of a church in Alexandria, is believed to have lived in the first part of the 6th century A.D. He was a Peripatetic in philosophy, and wrote a commentary on the Meteorologica of Aristotle, which was printed by Aldus (Venice, 1561, fol.). He is sometimes called the Younger, to distinguish him from the Peripatetic philosopher of the same name who was the master of Proclus, but who is not known to us by any extant work. He also wrote a commentary on Ecclesiastes, which is printed in the Auctarium Patr. Due. 2:602 sq., and in the Bibl. Max. Patr. 18:490. His Notes on Job are included in the Catena of Nicetas on that book (Lond. 1637, fol.); and his Notes on Jeremiah in the Catena Ghisteriana.
