2. Of the Oasis, an epic poet of the time of Diocletian. Suidas (s. v.) mentions, as his works, an Encomium on Diocletian, a poem entitled Βασσαρικὰ ἤτοι Διονυσιακά, in four books, one on Pantheia of Babylon (τὰ κατὰ Πάνθειαν τὴν Βαβυλωνίαν), another on Ariadne (τὰ κατὰ Ἀριάδ̔νην), a life of Apollonius of Tyana, a poetical history of the taking of Thebes by Alexander the Great, entitled Πύθων Ἀλεξανδριακόν, and others. A scholiast on Lycophron (486) quotes a passage from his Καλυδωνιακά. (Fabric. Bibl. Graec. vol. iii. p. 52; Vossius, de Hist. Graec. pp. 293, 294, ed. Westermann.)
