2. A historian, so miscalled, of whom Polybius, speaking of his account of the proceedings at Rome when the news arrived of the capture of Saguntum in u. 100.219, says that his writings contained, not history, but gossip fit for barbers' shops, κουρεακῆς καὶ πανδήμου λαλιᾶς. (Plb. 3.20.) We find no record either of the place of his birth or of the exact period at which he flourished. A writer of this name is mentioned by Athenaeus also (i. p. the 32, d.), but whether he is the same person as the preceding cannot be determined.
