Dionysus of Miletus (t)
Dionysus of Miletus, also known as Skytobrachion (leather arm) lived in Alexandria in the middle of the 2nd century BC and wrote a book entitled Argonautica. It is frequently claimed that he lived in the 6th century BC, but this is highly questionable. His work was among that of a number of writers that Diodorus Siculus drew upon when he wrote his account of the North African Amazons and their conflict with the Atlanteans. An extensive manuscript copy of Dionysus’ book was allegedly found among the papers of Pierre Benoit, the novelist, but subsequently ‘lost’.
