(69 words)

[German version]

(Εὐμήδης; Eumḗdēs). Comic poet of the 3rd cent. BC ─ two victories at the Lenaea are attested for him in an inscription; on the list of prize-winners his name is entered after that of  Diodorus [10], the brother of  Diphilus [5] [1st test.]. Of his Σφαττόμενος (Sphattómenos; ‘The Tormented One’) only one fragment in an extremely poor condition is extant.
