2. Of ATHENS, a poet of the old Attic comedy (Suid.), appears to have been a contemporary of Strattis, and to have consequently lived about Ol. 95. (Harpocrat. s. v. ἀσελφίρειν.) Suidas ascribes to him five comedies, viz. Δάλις, Ἰφιγέρων, Κρῆτες, Δανάη and Κένταυροι. Of the former three we still possess a few fragments, but the last two are completely lost. (Athen. iii. pp. 75, 114, xi. pp. 467, 485; Phot. Lex. s. v. μνσικάρφης; Aelian, Hist. Ann. 6.51; Phot. p. 624; Meineke, Hist. Crit. Comic. Graec. p. 266, &c.)
