E'riphus

*)/Erifos), an Athenian comic poet of the middle comedy. According to Athenaeus, he lived at the same time as Antiphanes, or onl va little later, and he copied whole verses from Antiphanes. That he belonged to the middle comedy, is sufficiently shewn by the extant titles of his plays, namely, Αἴολος, Μελίβοια, Πελταστής. Eustathius (Eustath. ad Hom. p. 1686. 43) calls him λόγιος ἀνήρ. (Athen. 2.58a., iii. p. 84b. c., iv. pp. 134, c., 137, d., vii. p. 302e., xv. p. 693c.; Antiatt. p. 98. 26; Suidas, s.v. Eudoc. p. 167; Meineke, Fray. Com. Graec. vol. i. pp. 420, 421, iii. pp. 556-558; Fabric. Bibl. Graec. vol. ii. pp. 441, 442.)
