Not to be confused with Aelius Dionysius, a Greek lexicographer who also is referred to as Atticista.

Aelius Moeris (probably flourished in the 2nd century A.D.) was a Greek grammarian, surnamed Atticista (the Atticist).[1]


He was the author of an extant (more or less alphabetical) list of Attic forms and expressions (Greek: Ἀττικαὶ λέξεις), accompanied by the Hellenistic parallels of his own time, the differences of gender, accent, and meaning being clearly and succinctly pointed out.[1]
