2. Of Thebes, a player of the cithara, whom Lucian mentions as a competitor at one of the musical contests in the Pythian games.
There is nothing to determine his time. (Lucian. ad v. Indoct. 9,
vol. iii. p. 108.)
The scholiast on a passage in which Aristophanes mentions Thespis ( Vesp. 1470,
comp. Suid. s. v.
), states that the Thespis here meant was the citharoedic musician, not the tragic poet; but Bentley maintains that this is an error. (Second Dissert. on Phalaris,
p. 265, or p. 190, ed. 1777.)
