Sylburg learned Greek in Paris under Henri Estienne and was a corrector and editor of Greek texts in Frankfurt before becoming librarian to the Elector Palatine in Heidelberg in 1591. He died in 1596. The text for this Etymologicon was based on that of Marcus Musurus, originally printed in Venice by Kallierges in 1499, and it retains Musurus' preface as well as Federico Torresani's later one from 1549 (UCLA 1036).
