Abron (ancient Greece)
Abron or Habron (Ancient Greek: Ἅβρων) was the name of a number of people in classical Greek history:
2. The son of Callias, of the deme of Bate in Attica, who wrote on the festivals and sacrifices of the Greeks. He also wrote a work, περὶ παρωνύμων, which is frequently referred to by Stephanus of Byzantium (s.v. Ἀγάθη, Ἄργος, &c.) and other writers.
3. A Phrygian or Rhodian sophist and grammarian, pupil of Tryphon, and originally a slave, who taught at Rome under the first Caesars. He was presumably the same Habron who was the author of the treatise On the Pronoun.
