Myniscus

*Muni/skos), a tragic actor, a native of Chalcis, who was attacked by Plato in his comedy called Σύρφαξ, on account of his gluttony. A man named Myniscus was one of the actors of Aeschylus. The Myniscus who was ridiculed by Plato was perhaps his grandson. (Athen. 8.344d. e.; Meineke, Fragmenta Poet. Com. vol. ii. p. 668.)
