A short piece here 
http://ocham.blogspot.com/2010/10/andronicus-of-rhodes.html You can read it, 
but the take-home is pretty brief.

(1) Here is another of the many examples where proper encyclopedic content 
is plagiarised entirely from 100-year old sources.

(2) Suggesting the thought: if Wikipedia now is relying on century-old 
sources, what sources will Wikipedia be relying on in 100 years time?  For 
Wikipedia has apparently made traditional sources obselete.
