Dionysius of Halicarnassus

(c. 60 BC - c. 7 BC)

As a teacher of rhetoric, Dionysius of Halicarnassus wrote studies of the orators Lysias, Demosthenes, and Isocrates, as well as the essay “On the Arrangement of Words,” one of the only surviving ancient criticism devoted to the subject of word order. Of his twenty-book history, only eleven, covering up to 441 BC, are extant.
