504, 1137, Pax, 1008, with the note of the scholiast.)
There was a proverb: Μορύχου εὐηθέστερος
, More foolish than Morychus
; but whether it had reference to the tragic poet of that name, or not, we do not know. (Fabric. Bibl. Graec.
vol. ii. p. 311; Bode, Gesch. der Hellen. Dichtkunst,
vol. iii. part i. p. 548.)
