Σωσίθεος). A native of Alexandria in the Troad; a Greek tragedian, one of the Alexandrian Pleiad. He lived in the first half of the third century B.C. in Athens and in Alexandria in Egypt. In an epigram of the Greek Anthology (vii. 707) he is celebrated as the restorer of the satyric drama. We still possess an interesting fragment of his satyric plays, the Daphnis (twenty-one lines in Nauck's Tragicorum Gr. Fragm. 822, ed. 1889).
