*Qeodwri/das), of Syracuse, a lyric and epigrammatic poet, who is supposed to have lived at the same time as Euphorion, that is, about B. C. 235; for, on the one hand, Euphorion is mentioned ill one of the epigrams of Theodoridas (Ep. ix.), and, on the other hand, Clemens Alexandrinus (Strom. v. p. 673) quotes a verse of Euphorion ἐν ταῖς πρὸς Θεωρίδαν ἀντιγραφαῖς, where Schneider suggests the emendation Θεοδωρίδαν. He had a place in the Garland of Meleager. In addition to the eighteen epigrams ascribed to him in the Greek Anthology, about the genuineness of some of which there are doubts (Brunck, Anal. vol. ii. p. 41; Jacobs, Anth. Graec. vol. ii. p. 42, vol. xiii. p. 959), he wrote a lyric poem Εἰς Ἔρωτα, upon which a commentary was written by Dionysius, surnamed Λεπτός (Ath. xi. p. 475f.), a dithyramb entitled Κένταυροι (Ath. xv. p. 699; Eustath. ad Odyss. p. 1571, 16), licentious verses of the kind called φλύακες (Suid. s.v. Σωτάδης, as corrected by Meineke, Anal. Alex. p. 246), and some other poems, of which we have a few fragments, but not the titles. The name is more than once confounded with Θεόδωρος and Θεοδώριτος. (Fabric. Bibl. Graec. vol. iv. p. 496; Bode, Gesch. d. Hellen. Dichtkunst, vol. ii. pt. 2, p. 333; Ulrici, vol. ii. p. 613; Schmidt, Diatribe in Dithyramb. pp. 147-150.)
