Εὐέτης) and EUXE'NIDES (Εὐξενίδης), were Athenian comic poets, contemporary with Epicharmus, about B. C. 485. Nothing is heard of comic poetry during an interval of eighty years from the time of Susarion, till it was revived by Epicharmus in Sicily, and by Evetes, Euxenides, and Myllus at Athens. The only writer who mentions these two poets is Suidas (s. v. Ἐπίχαπηος). Myllus is not unfrequently mentioned. [MYLLUS.] (Meineke, Hist. Crit. Com. Graec. p. 26.)

There is also a Pythagorean philosopher, Evetes, of whom nothing is known but his name. (Iamblich. Vit. Pyth. 36.)
