Adrianus (Gr. Αδριανός) was a Greek poet who wrote an epic poem on the history of Alexander the Great, which was called the Alexandriad (Αλεξανδριάς). We chiefly know of this poem from a mention of the seventh book in the Suda, but we possess only a fragment consisting of one line. The Suda mentions, among other poems, a work by a poet "Arrianus" called Alexandriad or Αλεξανδριάς, and there can be no doubt that this is the work of Adrianus, which is mistakenly attributed to this "Arrianus".
