Asclepius of Tralles



Asclepius of Tralles (Greek: Ἀσκληπιός; died c. 560–570) was a student of Ammonius Hermiae. Two works of his survive:

Commentary on Aristotle's Metaphysics, books I-VII (In Aristotelis metaphysicorum libros Α - Ζ (1 - 7) commentaria, ed. Michael Hayduck, Commentaria in Aristotelem Graeca, VI.2, Berin: Reiner, 1888).

Commentary on Nicomachus' Introduction to Arithmetic (Leonardo Tarán, Asclepius of Tralles, Commentary to Nicomachus' Introduction to Arithmetic, Transactions of the American Philosophical Society (n.s.), 59: 4. Philadelphia, 1969.

Both works seem to be notes on the lectures conducted by Ammonius.
