Hege'sinus

*(Hghsi/nous), a writer of uncertain date, author of a poem on Attica, called Ἀτθίς, apparently of a legendary character. Pausanias, who has preserved four verses of the poem, tells us that it had perished utterly before his time, and that he took the verses in question from the work of Callippus, the Corinthian, on the history of Orchomenus, in Boeotia. (Paus. 9.29.)
