From Sicyon, choral lyricist (performance in Athens: 406/398 BC: IG II2 3092). Writer of a paean to Hygiea, famous up to the imperial period in many places. The poem, written in dactylo-epitrites pleaded for assistance from ‘Health’, personified as a deity (not yet genealogically connected with Apollo/Asclepius). It certainly belongs in the context of the Asclepius cult of Epidaurus and Athens . Erroneously associated with Licymnius [1; 2] by some researchers.
