Κιναίθων), of Lacedaemon, one of the most fertile of the Cyclic poets, is placed by Eusebius (Chron. O1. 3. 4) in B. C. 765. He was the author of: 1. Telegonia (Τηληγγονία), which gave the history of Odysseus from the point where the Odyssey breaks off to his death. (Euseb. l.c.) 2. Genealogies, which are frequently referred to by Pausanias (2.3.7, 18.5, 4.2.1, 8.53.2; comp. Schol. ad Hom. Il. 3.175), and which must consequently have been extant in A. D. 175. 3. Heracleia (Ἡράκλεια), containing an account of the adventures of Heracles. (Schol. ad Apoll. Rhod. 1.1357.) 4. Oedipodia (Οἰδιποδία), the adventures of Oedipus, is ascribed to Cinaethon in an ancient inscription (Heeren, in Bibl. d. alien Literat. und Kunst, vol. iv. p. 57), but other authorities speak of the author as uncertain. (Paus. 9.5.5; Schol. ad Eurip. Phoen. 1760.) 5. The Little Iliad (Ἰλιὰς μικρά) was also attributed by some to Cinaethon. (Schol. Vat. ad Eur. Troad. 822; comp. Welcker, Epischer Cyclus, p. 243.)
