*Damo/cenos) was an Athenian comic poet of the new comedy, and perhaps partly of the middle.


Comic plays

Two of his plays, entitled Εύντροφοι and Ἑαυτὸν πενθῶν, are mentioned by Athenaeus, who quotes a long passage from the former, and a few lines from the latter. Elsewhere he calls him, less correctly, Demoxenus.


The longer fragment was first published, with a Latin version, by Hugo Grotius, in his Excerpta ex Tragoedüs et Comoedüs Graecis, Par. 1626, 4to.
