The Art of Grammar (Greek: Τέχνη Γραμματική or (romanized) Technē Grammatikē) is a treatise on Greek grammar, attributed to Dionysius Thrax, who wrote in the 2nd century BC. It is the first work on grammar in Greek, and also the first concerning a Western language; it sought mainly to help speakers of Koine Greek understand the language of Homer and other great poets of the past.[1]

It was translated into Armenian and Syriac in the early centuries AD.[citation needed]
