1. A teacher of music at Athens in the youth of Socrates, who is made by Plato to mention him with a sort of ironical praise, as second only to Connus. (Menex.
p. 236; comp. Ath. x. p. 506f.) We learn from other sources that he was very celebrated as a musician. (Ath. ii. p. 44d.; Plut. de Mus.
31, p. 1142 ; Nepos, Epam.
He is said to have been the teacher of Sophocles in music and dancing. (Ath. i. p.20, f.; Vit. Soph.
) This statement, and the reference to his death by Phrynichus (ap. Ath. ii. p. 44d.), fix his time to the former part of the fifth century B. C.
