*Murti/los), a Greek comic poet, the brother of Hermippus. Suidas has preserved the names of two of his plays, the Τιτανόπανες, and the Ἔρωτες. One object of his ridicule in the former was the tasteless love of display shown by the Megarian Choregi. (Aspasius ad Aristot. Ethic. Nic. 4.2; Meineke, Hist. Crit. Com. Graec. p. 100; Bode, Geschichte der Hellen. Dichtkunst, vol. iii. part ii. p. 170).
