1. A writer on poetry or music, probably the latter. Suidas is the only author who expressly mentions him (s. v. ψιάζειν
). Harpocration (s. v. Μουσαῖος
) seems to allude to memoirs of Praxidamas, written by Aristoxenus.
He must, therefore, have lived between the time of Democritus, B. C. 460, and that of Aristoxenus, B. C. 320. (See Jonsius, de Script. Hist. Phil.
1.14. 8, &c.)
