Metrodorus of Lampsacus

Ion. Very true, Socrates; interpretation has certainly been the most laborious part of my art; and I believe myself able to speak about Homer better than any man; and that neither Metrodorus of Lampsacus, nor Stesimbrotus of Thasos, nor Glaucon, nor any one else who ever was, had as good ideas about Homer as I have, or as many. Plato's Ion

Metrodorus of Lampsacus was a Philosopher of the 5th c. BC, who made some critical comments about Homer's Gods as they were represented in his stories (like Xenophanes or Plato).

He associated the Gods with various elements or parts of nature (for example Agamemnon was "air").

There is also the Epicurean Philosopher Metrodorus
