Eustratios of Nicaea was an extremely erudite Byzantine scholar who produced commentaries on Aristotle’s ethical and logical treatises. He seems to have belonged to the intellectual circle of Anna Komnene in the 1120s/1130s. His works, in which he followed ancient commentaries, some of which are now lost, but also added his own remarks, were particularly instrumental in the transmission and rediscovery of Aristotelian thought in the Latin West.
