Poseidippus

3. An historian, who wrote a work respecting Cnidus, which contained several particulars respecting the Venus of Praxiteles. (Clem. Alex. Protrept. pp. 16,17; Arnob. 6.13.) He is also cited by Tzetzes, who concludes his quotation with an epigram by Poseidippus (Chil. 7.144). From this and other circumstances it appears very probable that this historian was the same person as the epigrammatist. (Vossius, de Hist. Graec. p.491, ed. Westermann).
