2. One of the early Greek poets whom Plutarch (de Fac. in Orb. Lun. p. 931e.) classes together with Mimnermus and Archilochus. Whether he is the same as the author of a song which was very popular at Athens in the time of Aristophanes, who however is called by the Scholiast (ad Nub. 966) Cydides of Hermione, is uncertain. (Plat. Charm. p. 155d.; Schneidewin, Delectus Poet. Iamb. et Melic. Graec. p. 375, &c.; Bergk, Poet. Lyr. Graeci, p. 837.)
