*Kerea/lios), a poet of the Greek Anthology, whose time and country are unknown. Three epigrams are ascribed to him by Brunck (Anal. ii. p. 345), but of these the third is of very doubtful authorship. Of the other two the first is a jocose allusion to the poetic contests at the Grecian games, the second is in ridicule of those grammarians who thought to pass for pure Attic writers on the strength of a few Attic words and, in general, of the use of obsolete words.
