2. A Bithynian, wrote a history of his native country, of which the tenth book is quoted by Stephanus of Byzantium. (s. vv. Κοσσός, Μαυσωωλοί; comp. s. vv. Τάρας, Ταρσός, Τευμησσός, Ἀλεξανδρεία, Ἀρτάκη; Etym. Mag. s. v. Ἠραία.) He further wrote an account of the foundations of towns (κτίσεις), which is likewise several times quoted by Stephanus. Euphorion wrote a poem against this historian under the title of Δημοσθένης, of which a fragment is still extant. (Bekker, Anecdot. p. 1383; comp. Meineke, de Euphorione, p 31.)
