Found inThe handbook of Platonism, 1993: CIP t.p. (Alcinous) galley (commentator asserts that paleographic and internal evidence show that author has been incorrrectly identified as Albinus, and that the true author is a 2nd-century middle Platonist philosopher named Alcinous (not Alcinous the Stoic), but that there is no further information about him)
NUC pre-56 (Albinus; ref. from Alcinous Platonicus)
Alcinoos. Enseignement des doctrines de Platon, 2002: t.p. (Alcinoos) p. vii-ix (since 1879 Alcinoos was identified with Albinus, but current evidence shows that the author of Didaskalikos was not Albinus, but a middle Platonist named Alcinoos; not the same as Alcinous the Stoic, who spelled his name Ἀλκίνους, not Ἀλκίνοος, the spelling of the author of Didaskalikos)
