Lucillus (Loukillos)

Lucillus (Loukillos) of Tarrha, in Crete, wrote a work on the city of Thessalonica (Steph. Byz. s. v. Phessalonike), a commentary on the Argonautica of Apollonius Rhodius, and a collection of Proverbs, which, with those of Didymus of Alexandria, appear to have been the source of most of the later collections of the kind. Thus Zenobius expressly states that he collected his proverbs from Lucillus and Didymus. The proverbs of Lucillus are also quoted by Tzetzes (Chil. viii. 149), by Apostolius, and by Stephanus (s. v. Tarra, reading Loukillos for Loukios, comp. s. v. Kalarna)
