Disambiguation Notice

(ger)There are differen Apollodoros' - the Mythologist, the Orator and others.

Some surviving manuscripts of the "Bibliotheca" give the author's name as Apollodorus, and scholars from Photius onwards have mistakenly identified this work with Apollodorus of Athens (born circa 180 BCE). However, since the "Bibliotheca" cites a Roman author, Castor the Annalist, of the 1st century BCE, the text could not have been written by Apollodorus of Athens. The author, therefore, is sometimes referred to as either Pseudo-Apollodorus or Scriptor Bibliothecae. There do not seem to be any works on LT by Apollodrus of Athens at this time.
