*Ka/llippos), literary.

1. A comic poet, who is mentioned only by Athenaeus (xv. p. 668) as the author of a comedy entitled Pannychis. Porson proposed to read in this passage Hipparchus instead of Callippus, because it is known that Hipparchus composed a comedy Pannychis. (Athen. 15.691.) But this is not a sufficient reason for striking the name of Callippus from the list of comic writers. (Meineke, (Meineke. Hist. Crit. Com. Gr. p. 490.)
