*)Ana/nios), a Greek iambic poet, contemporary with Hipponax (about 540 B. C.) The invention of the satyric iambic verse called Scazon is ascribed to him as well as to Hipponax. (Hephaest. p. 30, 11, Gaisf.) Some fragments of Ananius are preserved by Athenaeus (pp. 78, 282, 370), and all that is known of him has been collected by Welcker. (Hipponactis et Ananii Iambographorum Fragmenta, p. 109, &c.)
