3. Of Arcadia, the author of a poem on fishery (ἁλιευτικά
or θαλάσσια ἔργα
), a considerable fragment of which is preserved by Athenaeus. (Ath. i. p. 13b., vii. pp. 283, a. c., 305, c., 321, f.) Several critics imagine him to be identical with one or both of the two preceding poets. (See Burette, in the Mem. de l' Acad. des Inscr.
vol. xix. p. 441.) Athenaeus quotes two lines, in elegiac metre, from the first book of the Κογχορηΐς
of Pancrates, whom the subject of the poem and the simple mention of the name in Athenaeus would lead us to identify with the author of the ἁλιευτικά
, while the metre suggests the probability that he was also the same as the epigrammatist.
