Brill's New Pauly: "P. was a Christian polymath who lived in Alexandria [1] around AD 490-575 and was a disciple of Ammonius [12]. His cognomen may have been inspired by his enthusiasm for his work or by his membership in the brotherhood of the philóponoi (φιλόπονοι). He was sharply criticized for his Christian faith by the Neoplatonist scholar Simplicius, a member of the Academy in Athens, after Emperor Justinian [1] had closed that institution in AD 529 .....P. wrote numerous works dealing with such fields as mathematics, astronomy, grammar and medicine
many of them have not been preserved. Of particular importance are the following: his surviving commentaries on Aristotle (on Aristot. An., An. pr., An. post., Cat., Gen. corr., Mete., Ph., his polemical writings De aeternitate mundi contra Proclum and De aeternitate mundi contra Aristotelem (only fragments remain) and his commentary on the hexaemeron (De opificio mundi)..." from Savvidis, Kyriakos (Bochum).
