2. Of Ephesus, an epic poet, who is mentioned by Plutarch (de Fluv.
18) as the author of an epic poem, Περσηΐς
. His age is quite unknown. Welcker (Der Episch. Cycl.
p. 50) considers this Ctesias to be the same as the Musaeus (which he regards as a fictitious name) of Ephesus to whom Suidas and Eudocia ascribe an epic poem, Perseis, in ten books.
But this is a mere conjecture, in support of which little can be said.
