Brunck, Richard Franz Philip, scholar, was born in 1729 at Strasburg. After some military service in the Seven Years' war, he resumed his studies and became an able critic and commentator of the classics. He published useful editions of Virgil, Apollonius Rhodius, Anacreon, Aristophanes, Sophocles, etc. His studies were interrupted by the Revolution, and during the Terror he was imprisoned. After his liberation he was so reduced that he was obliged to sell his library. He died in 1803 at Strasburg.
