Euboeus

*Eu)/boios) of Paros, a very celebrated writer of parodies, who lived about the time of Philip of Macedonia. In his poems, which seem to have been written in the style of Homer, he ridiculed chiefly the Athenians. Euboeus and Boeotus are said to have excelled all other parodists. In the time of Athenaeus a collection of his Parodies in four books was still extant, but all of them are lost with the exception of a few short fragments. (Athen. xv. pp. 698, 699; comp. Weland, Dissert. de Parodiar. Homeric. Scriptoribus, p. 41. &c.)
