), a comic poet, of unknown time, the author of four dramas, Ἄσωτος
, and Φιλοδεσπότης
, of which we have scarcely any remnants, beyond the titles. (Antiatt. pp. 80. 12, 81. 1, 89. 23, 91. 1, 98. 4; Phot. Lex. s. v. χάγρα
He is mentioned by Photius among the poets quoted by Stobaeus (Bibl.
Cod. 167, p. 374); but no references to him are found in our present copies of Stobaeus.
It is probable also that the name of a poet Δημόστρατος
, whose Δημοποίητος
is quoted by Suidas (s. c. χάραξ
) is an error for Τιμόστρατος
. (Meineke, Frag. Com. Graec.
vol. i. pp. 499, 500, vol. iv. pp. 595, 596; Editio Minor, p. 1184.)
