The Art of Grammar (Greek: Τέχνη Γραμματική) is a treatise on Greek grammar attributed to Dionysius Thrax, and written in the 2nd century BC. It is the first work of grammar in Greek, and it sought mainly to help speakers of Koine Greek to be able to understand the language of Homer and other great poets of the past.[1]

It was translated into Armenian and Syriac in the early centuries AD.
