Εὔφρων), an Athenian comic poet of the new comedy, whose plays, however, seem to have partaken largely of the character of the middle comedy. We have the titles and some considerable fragments of the following plays :-- Ἀδελφοί Αἰσχρά, Ἀποδιδοῦσα (according to the excellent emendation of Meineke, Εὔφρων for Εὐφορίων Athen. 11.503a.), Δίδυμοι, Θεῶν Ἀγορα, Θεωροί, Μοῦσαι, Παρεκδιδομένη (or, as Meineke thinks it should perhaps be, Παρεκδιδομενη, which is the title of a play of Antiphanes), Συνέφηβοι. (Suid. s.v. Athen. passim : Stobaeus, Flor. 15.2, 28.11, 98.12; Memeke, Frag. Com. Graec. vol. i. pp. 477, 478, vol. iv. pp. 486-495 ; Fabric. Bibl. Graec. vol. ii. p. 444.)
