This article offers the most complete and up-to-date catalogue of Greek inscriptions attesting grammarians (“Annex”). It includes several inscriptions more than the otherwise excellent collection by S. Agusta-Boularot. The first part of this contribution consists of a commentary on the collected sources: epigraphic evidence confirms the picture of grammarians as experts on poetry and teachers at different levels of education in gymnasia and schools. The inscriptions depict grammarians as people of low social status and their virtual absence from the public life of the poleis (none of them held any important municipal or Imperial office), in contrast to rhetors and sophists.
