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
. 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.)
