(Θουγενίδης; Thougenídes). Poet of the Old Comedy (I. C.); it is uncertain whether he was on the list of victors at the Dionysia in fifth place after Cratinus [1. test. *1]. Of his only recorded play, Δικασταί (Dikastaí, ‘The Judges), two short fragments survive; five other play fragments without titles are also uninformative.
