Μακαρεύς). Athenaeus cites in two places (vi. p. 262c. xiv. p. 639d' the Κωακά of Macareus. As his citation, the same in both places, is from the third book, we know that the history comprehended at least three books: but nothing more seems known either of the author or the work, except that it was written after the time of Phylarchus, from whom Macareus quotes three hexameter lines, and who appears to have lived in the reign of Ptolemy Euergetes and Ptolemy Philopator, kings of Egypt, i. e. B. C. 246-204. (Fabric. Bibl. Graec. vol. viii. p. 367.)
