2. Of Ephesus, an epic poet, who is mentioned by Plutarch (de Fluv. 18) as the author of an epic poem, Περσηΐς. His age is quite unknown. Welcker (Der Episch. Cycl. p. 50) considers this Ctesias to be the same as the Musaeus (which he regards as a fictitious name) of Ephesus to whom Suidas and Eudocia ascribe an epic poem, Perseis, in ten books. But this is a mere conjecture, in support of which little can be said.
