Writer of comedies, probably a contemporary of Alexis (second half of 4th to beginning of 3rd cent.) Like the latter, A. had written a Πρωτόχορος (two short fr. extant), and he or Alexis was regarded as the writer of the Ὁμοία quoted by Ath. 14 642cd. Whether one may conclude from this that both poets may have each written a Homoía [1. 308; 2], remains uncertain. However, the title Μεμψίμοιρος [1. 308] is well attested.
