*Kalli/cenos), of Rhodes, a contemporary of Ptolemy Philadelphus.


Callixenus was the author of two works, which are lost.

περὶ Ἀλεξανδρείας

The work which bore the title of περὶ Ἀλεξανδρείας, consisted of at least four books, and was much used by Athenaeus. (Athen. 5.196, &c., ix. p. 387, xi. pp. 472, 474, 483; Harpocrat. s. v. ἐγγυθήκη

A Catalogue of Painters and Sculptors (Ζ̓ωγράφων τε καὶ ἀνδριπαντοποιῶν ἀναγραφή

The second work appears to have been a catalogue of painters and sculptors (Ζ̓ωγράφων τε καὶ ἀνδριπαντοποιῶν ἀναγραφή), of which Sopater, in the twelfth book of his Eclogae had made an abridgement. (Phot. Bibl. Cod. 16]; comp. Preller, Polem. Fragm. p. 178, &c.)
