Aristo (or Ariston) of Alexandria (Greek: Ἀρίστων ὁ Ἀλεξανδρεύς) was a Peripatetic philosopher and a contemporary of Strabo in the 1st century. According to Philodemus, he was a pupil of Antiochus of Ascalon.  He wrote a work on the Nile. Eudorus, a contemporary of his, wrote a book on the same subject, and the two works were so much alike, that the authors charged each other with plagiarism. Who was right is not said, though Strabo seems to be inclined to think that Eudorus was the guilty party.
