1. An Athenian comic poet of the old comedy, gained a prize B. C. 402. (Lysias, Δροδ
. p. 162. 2, ed. Steph; Suidas, s.v. Eudoc. p. 270.)
This date is confirmed by the title of one of his comedies, Ἀντιλαΐς
, which evidently refers to the celebrated courtezan Lais; and also by his being mentioned in connexion with Cratinus, Aristophanes, Callias, Diodes, Eupolis, and Hermippus.
The following are the known titles of his plays : Ἀντιλαΐς, Ἀμαζόνες, Τροφώνιος,Ὗς
A few fragments of them are preserved by Photius and Suidas (s. v. Ὄνος ὕεται
, by Pollux (6.173, 7.40, 87), and by Athenaeus. (iii. p. 119d., viii. p. 345f., xi. p. 459a., xii. p. 553a., xiv. p. 629d., xv. p. 667d., p. 689f., p. 701b.)
