MOSCHOPULUS ("little calf," probably a nickname), MANUEL, Byzantine commentator and grammarian, lived during the end of the 13th and the beginning of the 14th century. His chief work is 'Epuwri7para ypaµµaTlKa, in the form of question and answer, based upon an anonymous epitome of grammar, and supplemented by a lexicon (ovXXoyi)) of Attic nouns. He was also the author of scholia on the first and second books of the Iliad, on Hesiod, Theocritus, Pindar and other classical and later authors; of riddles, letters, and a treatise on the magic squares. His grammatical treatises formed the foundation of the labours of such promoters of classical studies as Manuel Chrysoloras, Theodorus Gaza, Guarini, and Constantine Lascaris. A selection from his works under the title of Manuelis Moschopuli opuscula grammatica was published by F. N. Titze (Leipzig, 1822) ; see also C. Krumbacher, Geschichte der byzantinischen Litteratur (1897) and M. Treu, Maximi monachi Planudis epistulae (189o), p. 208.
