Antimachus was born in Mantua. His father, who was also educated, sent him to Greece while he was young, where he spent five years studying Greek under a Spartan, John Mosco. He returned to Italy and opened a Greek language school in Mantua, which became well known. He later moved to Ferrara, where he ran a similar school, and where he died in 1552. In addition to teaching, he translated some Greek works, which were published in Basel in 1540, and wrote some Latin poetry.
