Σουσαρίων). A Greek to whom the origin of the Attic Comedy is ascribed. He was a native of Megara, whence he removed into Attica to the village of Icaria, a place celebrated as a seat of the worship of Dionysus. The Megaric Comedy appears to have flourished, in its full development, about B.C. 600 and onwards, and it was introduced by Susarion into Attica between 580-564. See Comoedia.
