1. A comic poet, mentioned by Lucian, who ridicules him for the absurd pedantry with which, though born in Boeotia, he affected to carry the Attic use of T for Σ
to an extreme, using not only such words as τετταράκοντα
, but even βασίλιτταα
. (Lucian, Jud. Vocal.
i. p. 90; Meineke, Hist. Crit. Com. Graec.
p. 493.) Nothing more is known of this Lysimachus, and possibly the name is fictitious.
