Cephisodo'rus

*Khfiso/dwros).

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.)
