Ammonius

Ammonius a Christian philosopher, sometimes confounded with Ammonius Saccas, lived at Alexandria in the third century. He is the author of a "Harmony in the Gospel," a work which by several critics is attributed to Tatian, and which is said to have induced Eusebius to write his "Canons." There is a Latin translation of this work by Victor of Capua, entitled Ammonii, vulgo Tatiani, diatessaron, sive harmonioe in quatuor evangelia (Mayence, 1524, 8vo). A life of Christ was extracted from this work by Nachtigal (Latinized Luscinius), under the title Vita Jesu Christi, ex quatuor evangelistis ex Ammonii Alex fragmentis grecis latine versa, per O. Luscinium (Erfurt, 1544). This Ammonius is perhaps also the author of a metaphrase of the gospel of John, which is generally attributed to Nonnus, and which is found in MS. in the library of St. Mark at Venice. — Hoefer, Biographie Generale, 2, 384,
