) or MELESA'GORAS (Μελησαλόρας
), as he is called by others, of Chalcedon, one of the early Greek historians, from whom Gorgias and Eudemus of Naxos borrowed. (Clem. Alex. Strom.
vi. p. 629a; Schol. ad Eurip. Alcest.
2; Apollod. 3.10.3
, where Heyne has substituted Μελησαγόρας
.) Maximus Tyrius (Serm.
38.3) speaks of a Melesagoras, a native of Eleusis, and Antigonus of Carystus (Hist. Mirab.
100.12) of an Amelesagoras of Athens, the latter of whom wrote an account of Attica; these persons are probably the same, and perhaps also the same as Amelesagoras of Chalcedon. (Vossius, de Hist. Graec.
p. 22, ed. Westermann.)
