*Ce/narxos), literary.

1. A son of Sophron, and, like his father, a celebrated writer of mimes. He flourished during the Rhegian War (B. C. 399-389), at the court of Dionysius, who is said to have employed him to ridicule the Rhegians, as cowards, in his poems. (Phot. and Suid. s. v. Ῥηγίνους.) His mimes are mentioned, with those of Sophron, by Aristotle (Poet. 2). They were in the Doric dialect. (Clinton, F. H. vol. ii. s. a. 393 ; SOPHRON.)
