To quote the proposal on Wikipedia:Requested moves:

Apollodorus of Athens → Apollodorus -- Reason: Apollodorus is a disambiguation page, but most (I believe 95% - I see a half-dozen exceptions) of the 150 links to the page refer to Apollodorus of Athens. He was a mythographer, and all the mythological articles could refer to him as authority. Rather than adjusting all the links to him to Apollodorus, it will be much simpler to leave them alone, and add a note There were many ancient Greeks named Apollodorus. This article discusses the mythographer. For Apollodorus of Carystus.... see their articles. For other men named Apollodorus, see Apollodorus (disambiguation. ('Apollodorus of Athens' is also an anachronism; he would have been refered to by his deme.) Septentrionalis 21:32, 27 May 2005 (UTC

Apollodorus studied at Alexandria, but there appears to be no reason to describe him as Librarian. See [1]

Time of death[edit]

In the article he is categorized in Category:1st century BC deaths. Is there any foundation for the assumption that he lived to become 80 years or older? Shouldn't he rather be categories in Category:Year of death unknown? __meco 10:52, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

Apollodorus and Cleopatra[edit]

The character from the Cleopatra story is a different person, who might be called Apollodorus the Sicilian. I removed that paragraph. --Cam 16:49, 24 July 2007 (UTC)

Son of Asclepiades[edit]

The article now says that Apollodorus was the "son of Asclepiades". Asclepiades is currently linked to Asclepiades Pharmacion, in which it says that this Asclepiades lived during the 1st & 2nd centuries, NOT 1st & 2nd centuries BC - so how could he be his father?
