  Gaius Julius Hyginus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
He was a voluminous author, and his works included topographical and biographical treatises, commentaries on Helvius Cinna and the poems of Virgil, and disquisitions on agriculture and bee-keeping.
It is suggested that these treatises are an abridgment (made in the latter half of the 2nd century) of the Genealogiae of Hyginus by an unknown grammarian, who added a complete treatise on mythology.
His authorship of the Poeticon astronomicon star atlas is disputed, though during the Renaissance this attribution was commonplace.

It often appears like a crater chain in the telescope, but lunar photogeologists say the "craters" are collapse pits, where the wall of the rille has fallen in.
North of Hyginus and connected by a wide but shallow valley is a curious spiral mountain (Schneckenberg).
From the crater the prominent Hyginus Rille extends east-southeast toward the camera and northwest toward the Sea of Vapors.

More serious still, C. fails to indicate that her translations of the selections from book 3 of Hyginus are almost invariably based upon the text as radically emended by C. Robert so as to bring it in line with what he regarded as the Urtext of Eratosthenes (e.g., pp.
In translating the two texts, C. fares better with Ps-Eratosthenes than she does with Hyginus, which is not surprising since the translation of the former must have been vetted by the director of her dissertation and examining committee.
158 (line 11), Hyginus is explaining how the cap of invisibility worn by Perseus came to be confused by some misinformed authorities with the "helmet of Orcus" (god of the Underworld) because the Greeks referred to it as the "helmet of the Hades" (meaning the "Invisible One", not Hades god of the Underworld).

 Clytemnestra
Hyginus, in his Fabluae, suggests that Clytemnestra killed her husband and Cassandra at the prompting of Oeax, who had told her that Cassandra was being brought as a concubine.
Hyginus states that Oeax did this in order to "avenge the injustices of his brother." Odysseus, wanting no part of the Trojan War, had pretended to be insane.
Hyginus also suggests that Cassandra, in fact, was not being brought back as a concubine but, nonetheless, Clytemnestra planned the murders with Aegisthus.

According to the "Liber Pontificalis", Hyginus was a Greek by birth.
Cerdo, another Gnostic and predecessor of Marcion, also lived at Rome in the reign of Hyginus; by confessing his errors and recanting he succeeded in obtaining readmission into the bosom of the Church, but eventually he fell back into the heresies and was expelled from the Church.
How many of these events took place during the time of Hyginus is not known.

Since Hyginus held office in all probability from 137–141, and Anicetus from 154 or 155 to 166 or 167, Valentinus must have been in Rome at least thirteen years.
The distinction, however, cannot be insisted upon in the present case, and therefore we cannot determine decisively whether Cerdon was excluded by the congregation or excluded himself.
Why, in the passage quoted at the beginning of this chapter, he should change his reckoning, and call Hyginus the ninth if the original list of Irenæus from which he drew said eighth is difficult to see.

He is not thought to be the freedman of Augustus named Hyginus, nor is he thought to be Hyginus Gromaticus (Hornblower, 735).
Hyginus wrote the Genealogiae which is a relatively small encyclopedia of mythology.
Some estimate that it was written in the 2nd century A.D. Christian Fordyce states: "The work was abbreviated, perhaps for school use, and has suffered later accretions; its absurdities are partly due to the compiler's ignorance of Greek.

Yet Apollodorus also suggests [2.6.3] that the voyage of the ARGONAUTS and the hunt of the Calydonian boar took place while Theseus was on his way to Athens from Troezen, clearing the Isthmus of malefactors.
Besides Ovid, also Pausanias, Hyginus, and Apollodorus count Theseus among the CALYDONIAN HUNTERS, and the same authors (with the exception of Pausanias) assert that even Jason was among them.
Hyginus [Fabulae 25] says that Jason was burned to death along with his new bride Glauce 4 and her father Creon 3, as a result of Medea's machinations.
