Georgius Lecapenus, a monk of Thessaly, who lived about the middle of the fourteenth century, and
wrote on grammar and rhetoric. A treatise, Peri suntaxeos ton rhematon, De Constructione
Verborum, was printed at Florence A. D. 1515 and 1520, and at Venice, by Aldus
Manutius and Asulanus A. D. 1525, with the Greek grammar of Theodore Gaza. In
the printed editions the work is said to be by George Lecapenus; but Allatius,
on the authority of several MSS., claims it as the work of Michael Syncellus of
Jerusalem. Some works of George Lecapenus remain in MS. Among them are: 1. A Grammar,
or rather Lexicon of Attic Words, in alphabetical order. 2. An Exposition of the
Enchiridion of Epictetus. 3. A treatise On the Figures of Homer. 4. A History.
5. A Poem, in Iambic verse. 6. Several Letters. He also made a selection of the
Letters of Libanius.
