*Matre/as), called πλάνος or λαθπλάνος, the Deceiver or Imposter, appears to have been the author of various enigmas or riddles, one of which is mentioned by Athenaeus and Suidas. He also wrote a parody of the Problems of Aristotle; for such seems to have been the nature of the work mentioned by Athenaeus. (Athen. 1.19d, with Schweighäuser's note; Suidas, s. v.) He must have been a different person from Matreas or Matron of Pitana. [MATRON.]
