Diony'sius of SINOPE

*Dionu/sios), of SINOPE, an Athenian comic poet of the middle comedy. (Athen. xi. pp. 467, d., 497, c., xiv. p. 615e.; Schol. Horn. Il. 11.515.) He appears, from indications in the fragments of his plays, to have been younger than Archestratus, tc have flourished about the same time as Nicostratus, the son of Aristophanes, and to have lived till the establishment of the Macedonian supremacy in Greece. We have the titles and some fragments of his Ἀκοντιζόμενος (Ath. xiv. p. 664d.), which appears to have been translated by Naevius, Θεσμοφόρος (a long passage in Athen. 9.404,e.), Ὁμώνυμοι (Athen. 8.381c., xiv. p. 615e.), Λιμός (Schol. Hom. Il. xi, 515; Eustath. p. 859. 49), Σώζουσα or Σώτειρα (Athen. xi. pp. 467, d., 497, d.; Stob. Serm. 125.8.) Meursius and Fabricius are wrong in assigning the Ταξιάρχαι to Dionysius. It belongs to EUPOLIS. (Meineke, Frag. Com. Graec. i. pp. 419, 420, iii. pp. 547-555.]
