Alexander Ægeus

, of the first century, may be slightly noticed here, as sometimes confounded with Alexander Aphrodiseus. He was one of Nero’s preceptors, | but gained very little credit in this capacity, as he was suspected of having contributed to the corruption of his royal pupil. He wrote a “commentary on Aristotle’s Meteorology” in the manner of the ancient peripatetics. 1
