SUMMARYDarmstadt, Hessisches Landes- und Hochschulbibliothek MS 3303 (France, s. ix) is known primarily for the fragment it contains of the original version of the Satisfactio of Dracontius. The same four folios also contain two unidentified grammatical fragments: on 4rv a summary of schemata extracted from Cassiodorus's commentary on the psalms, and on ff. l-2v the conclusion of Dynamius's Ars grammatica. These fragments of Dynamius are edited and analyzed, and the authorship, contents and date of composition of this grammar are considered. These new fragments make it possible to emend Angelo Mai's edition, which was based on the only manuscript hitherto known, Bibliotheca Apostolica Vaticana, Pal. Lat. 1746 (Lorsch), and constitute an important new witness, albeit incomplete, for the critical edition in preparation by Luigi Munzi.RÉSUMÉDu IXe siècle et d'origine française, le manuscrit 3303 de la bibliothè-que de Darmstadt est surtout célèbre pour son fragment de la version originate de la Satisfactio de Dracontius. Les quatre feuillets subsistants contien-nent aussi deux fragments grammaticaux non identifies; au f. 4-4v un relevé des schèmes tirés du commentaire de Cassiodore sur les Psaumes et aux f. l-2v la fin de l'Ars grammatica de Dynamius. Apres l'edition et l'étude precise de ces fragments de Dynamius sont posés les problemes concernant l'auteur, le contenu reel et la date de composition de cette grammaire. Ces nouveaux fragments permettent de corriger l'édition d'Angelo Mai d'après l'unique manuscrit de Lorsch (Vatican, Pal. lat. 1746) et constituent un nouveau témoin, important bien que fragmentaire, pour l'édition critique préparée par Luigi Munzi.
