Georg Aenotheus Koch

Georg Aenotheus Koch (15 November 1802, Drebach – 9 July 1879, Leipzig) was a German classical philologist and lexicographer.

He studied theology and classical philology at the University of Leipzig as a student of Gottfried Hermann and Christian Daniel Beck. In 1825 he received his doctorate, and beginning in 1831 he taught classes at the Thomasschule zu Leipzig. In 1862 he was appointed school conrector.[1]

In addition to writing numerous editions of classical works, he did extensive work in regards to the lexicography of individual authors, namely: Horace, Virgil, Marcus Velleius Paterculus and Cornelius Nepos. He also published a Latin thesaurus (Gradus ad Parnassum), a pocket dictionary (over three editions) and a successful German-Latin geographical dictionary.[1]
