2. Of TEOS, an epic poet. Plutarch (Romul.
12) states, that he was said to have known something about the eclipse which occurred on the day of the foundation of Rome. Clemens Alexandrinus (Strom.
vi. p. 622c.) quotes an hexameter verse from him, which Agias is said to have imitated. If this statement is correct, Antimachus would belong to an early period of Greek literature.
