Eriphus
(70 words)

[German version]

(Ἔριφος; Ériphos). Poet of the Middle Comedy of whom three titles of works and seven fragments have still survived. In the Μελίβοια (Melíboia), E. appears to have taken up verses of  Antiphanes [1] and varied them (fr. 2; cf. Antiphanes fr. 59); in Πελταστής (Peltastḗs), a miles gloriosus probably appeared (fr. 6 [2. 326f.]).
