Scythi'nus

*Skuqi=nos), of Teos, an iambic poet, mentioned by Stephanus of Byzantium (s. v. Τές). He turned into verse the great work of the philosopher Heracleitus (D. L. 9.16 ; see Menag. ad loc.). A considerable fragment, apparently from this work, is preserved by Stobaeus (Eclog. Phys. 1.9.43, p. 264). He is also mentioned by Athenaeus (xi.p. 461), and twice by Plutarch, who quotes from him some verses respecting the lyre (Op. Mor. pp. 402, 705). Two of his epigrams are preserved in the Greek Anthology. (Brunck, Anal. vol. ii. p. 104; Jacobs, Anth. Graec. vol. ii. p. 91, vol. xiii. p. 950; Fabric. Bibl. Graec. vol. i. p. 866, vol. ii. pp. 142, 625, vol. iv. p. 494.)
