1. A flute-player and harper at Athens, who seems to have been more fond of hearing himself play than other people were of hearing him. He is ridiculed by Aristophanes. (Ach. 16, 831, Pax, 916, Av. 858.) From the Scholiast on the two passages last referred to we learn, that he was attacked also by Pherecrates in the Ἄγριοι (Plat. Protag. p. 327) and,--for there seems no reason to suppose this a different person, --by Cratinus in the Νέμεσις.
