1. Of Proconnesus, a contemporary of Pherecydes of Syros, who consequently lived about B. C. 560.
He is mentioned by Diogenes Laertius (4.58
) as the author of two works which he does not specify; but we must infer from Clemens of Alexandria (Strom.
vi. p. 267), that one of these was an abridgement of the work of the ancient historian, Cadmus of Miletus.
