Hippo'thoon

Ἱπποθόων), a Greek tragedian, whose exact time is unknown, but who probably lived shortly before Alexander the Great. He is several times quoted by Stobaeus, who also cites a poet Hippothoüs, the identity of whom with Hippothoön is uncertain. He is sometimes erroneously reckoned among the comic poets, as, for example, by Fabricius. (Bibl. Graec. vol. ii. p. 451; Welcker, die Griech. Tragyöd. p. 1099; Meineke, Hist. Crit. Com. Graec. p. 525.)
