1. A comic poet, mentioned by Lucian, who ridicules him for the absurd pedantry with which, though born in Boeotia, he affected to carry the Attic use of T for Σ to an extreme, using not only such words as τετταράκοντα, τήμερον, καττίτερον, κάττυμα and πίτταν, but even βασίλιτταα. (Lucian, Jud. Vocal. i. p. 90; Meineke, Hist. Crit. Com. Graec. p. 493.) Nothing more is known of this Lysimachus, and possibly the name is fictitious.
