Author(s): Hidber, Thomas
[English version] (Σωσίπατρος). Dichter der Neuen Komödie, einzig bekannt durch ein bei Athenaios bewahrtes 57 Verse langes Zitat aus dem Stück Καταψευδόμενος ( Katapseudómenos, ‘Der Verleumder) [1]. Darin preist ein Koch im Dialog mit seinem Gesprächspartner Demylos - verm. sein Auftraggeber - sich selbst als einen der drei größten lebenden Vertreter seines Fachs und dieses wiederum als eine auf Astrologie, Architektur und Strategie gegründete höchst anspruchsvolle Wissenschaft. Hidber, Thomas Bibliography 1 PCG VII, 1989, 604-607.

(62 words)

Author(s): Hidber, Thomas

Dieser führt ein Zitat von 8 V. mit der Bemerkung ein: ‘Diphilos oder S. sagt in der Ἀπολείπουσα (‘Die Davongelaufene) ...’ [1]. Das Fr. selbst wird eher dem bekannteren Diphilos zugeschrieben, zumal dessen gleichnamiges Stück noch mehrfach bezeugt ist [2]. Hidber, Thomas Bibliography 1 PCG VII, 1989, 608 2 PCG V, 1986, 58-61.

Demonikos

(49 words)

Author(s): Hidber, Thomas (Bern)
[English version] (Δημόνικος). Komödiendichter unbekannter Zeit, vielleicht des 4. Jh.v.Chr. [1]. D. ist einzig bei Athen. 9,410c bezeugt, wo aus dem Stück Ἀχελῶιος vier Verse zitiert werden, welche die Bewirtung eines heißhungrigen Böoters (vielleicht des Herakles) schildern (fr. 1). Hidber, Thomas (Bern) Bibliography 1 PCG V, 1986, 14.

Autokrates

(76 words)

Author(s): Hidber, Thomas (Bern)
[English version] Att. Dichter der Alten Komödie [1. test. 1], aus dessen einzigem noch bekanntem Stück, den Τυμπανισταί, Aelian zehn trochäische Kurzverse eines Tanzliedes zitiert (fr. 1). Die Notiz der Suda, A. habe auch τραγῳδίας πολλάς (‘viele Tragödien’) geschrieben [1. test. 1], scheint unglaubwürdig, bezieht sich vielleicht aber auf κωμῳδοτραγῳδίαι [2. 17212], d.h. ein auf komischen und trag. Elementen gemischtes Drama, lat. tragicomoedia. Hidber, Thomas (Bern) Bibliography 1 PCG IV, 1983, 18f. 2 Schmid/Stählin I 4, 1946, 172.

Autocrates

(86 words)

Author(s): Hidber, Thomas (Berne)
[German version] Attic author of Old Comedy [1. test. 1], the only play of his which is still known, the Τυμπανισταί, is the source for Aelian's quote of 10 trochaic short verses of a dancing song (fr. 1). The Suda's claim that A. also wrote τραγῳδίας πολλάς (‘many tragedies’) [1. test. 1], seems improbable, but is perhaps a reference to κωμῳδοτραγῳδίαι [2. 17212], i.e. a drama mixing comic and tragic elements, Lat. tragicomoedia. Hidber, Thomas (Berne) Bibliography 1 PCG IV, 1983, 18f. 2 Schmid/Stählin I 4, 1946, 172.

Sosicrates

(61 words)

Author(s): Hidber, Thomas (Berne)
[German version] (Σωσικράτης; Sōsikrátēs). Greek comic poet, attested exclusively in others' writings, by all appearances belonging to New Comedy. Pollux quotes three verses from the play Παρακαταθήκη ( Parakatathḗkē, 'The Pledge'), Athenaeus three from the Φιλάδελφοι ( Philádelphoi, 'The Fond Brothers'), Stobaeus two verses and the Suda the gloss ἀμφίας from unknown comedies [1]. Hidber, Thomas (Berne) Bibliography 1 PCG VII, 1989, 600-602.

Ameipsias

(106 words)

Author(s): Hidber, Thomas (Berne)
[German version] Attic poet of the Old Comedy, from whose productions seven titles of works and some short fragments are still extant. A. achieved second place in the Dionysia in the year 423 BC, behind Cratinus and ahead of Aristophanes (first, ‘Clouds’) [1. test. 5a]. He likewise had the victory in 414 in the Dionysia ahead of Aristophanes (‘Birds’) and Phrynichus [1. 203] and was victorious a further time in the Dionysia as well as once in the Lenaea [1. test. 3,4]. In the opinion of his rival Aristophanes, A. was a coarse comedian [1. test. 6]. Hidber, Thomas (Berne) Bibliography 1 PCG II,…

Sosippus

(73 words)

Author(s): Hidber, Thomas (Berne)
[German version] (Σώσιππος; Sṓsippos). Comic poet from an undetermined period, mentioned only in Athenaeus, who introduced a citation of 8 verses with the remark: Diphilus or S. says in his Ἀπολείπουσα ( The runaway) ... [1]. The fragment itself is more often ascribed to the better known Diphilus, particularly as his play of the same name is attested several times [2]. Hidber, Thomas (Berne) Bibliography 1 PCG VII, 1989, 608 2 PCG V, 1986, 58-61.

Demonicus

(55 words)

Author(s): Hidber, Thomas (Berne)
[German version] (Δημόνικος; Dēmónikos). Writer of comedies of unknown date, perhaps the 4th cent. BC [1]. D. is only attested in Ath. 9,410c where four verses are quoted from the piece Ἀχελῶιος ( Achelôios) that describe hospitality extended to a voracious Boeotian (perhaps Hercules) (fr. 1). Hidber, Thomas (Berne) Bibliography 1 PCG V, 1986, 14.

Callipus

(90 words)

Author(s): Hidber, Thomas (Berne)
[German version] Earlier thought to be a writer of comedies because of a transcription error in Ath. 15,668c, where three lines are quoted from Κάλλιπος ἐν Παννυχίδι (‘C. in the Pannychís). Since the appearance of the PBerolinensis 13417 with the rest of the drinking poem Pannychís by  Callimachus [3], including the lines quoted by Athenaeus, there can be no doubt that the phrase in question should read Καλλίμαχος [1; 2]. Hidber, Thomas (Berne) Bibliography 1 A. Körte, s.v. C. (18), RE 10, 1667 2 R. Pfeiffer, Callimachus I, 1949, 217 (F 227).

Philonicus

(49 words)

Author(s): Hidber, Thomas (Berne)
[German version] (Φιλόνικος; Philónikos). Comic poet of the transition period between Old and Middle Comedy, on the list of victors at the Lenaea after Philyllius with a victory around 390 [1. test. 2]. No fragments of his works are extant. Hidber, Thomas (Berne) Bibliography 1 PCG VII, 1989, 362.

Axionicus

(107 words)

Author(s): Hidber, Thomas (Berne)
[German version] (Ἀξιόνικος; Axiónikos) Poet of the Middle Comedy, of whose life nothing is known. The four play titles that are known (Τυρρηνός, Φιλευριπίδης, Φίλιννα, Χαλκιδικός) and the few fragments that have been preserved, suggest that A. belongs to the Middle Comedy [1; 2. 245ff.]. The monody of the cook in the style of Euripides in Φιλευριπίδης (fr. 4) is particularly characteristic: the comedy is evident less in the mockery of the tragic model and more in the contrast between the dithyrambic language and the everyday activity of preparing a meal [2. 246f.]. Hidber, Thomas (Be…

Anaxippus

(101 words)

Author(s): Hidber, Thomas (Berne)
[German version] Poet of the New Comedy, dated by the Suda in the time of the two Diadochi, Antigonus I and Demetrius I ( c. 320-283 BC) -- apparently on the basis of a mention of both these in one play of A. [1. 299]. The titles of five plays have been preserved (Ἐγκαλυπτόμενος, Κεραυνός, Ἐπιδικαζόμενος, Κιθαρῳδός, Φρέαρ); of these the last three also appear in other representatives of the New Comedy [1. 302 ff.], as well as some shorter fragments and a longer fragment (fr.1) of 49 verses with the speech of a cook. Hidber, Thomas (Berne) Bibliography 1 PCG II, 1991, 299-306.

Antidotus

(89 words)

Author(s): Hidber, Thomas (Berne)
[German version] 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. Hidber, Thomas (Berne) Bibliography 1 PCG II, 1991, 308-310 2 PCG V, 1986, 144.

Sosipater

(78 words)

Author(s): Hidber, Thomas (Berne)
[German version] (Σωσίπατρος; Sōsípatros). Poet of New Comedy, known only from a 57-verse citation, preserved in Athenaeus, from the play Καταψευδόμενος ( Katapseudómenos, 'The Slanderer') [1]. In the fragment, a cook praises himself - in a dialogue with his interlocutor Demylus, presumably his employer - as one of the three greatest living exponents of his craft, which he depicts as a most exacting science based on astrology, architecture and strategy. Hidber, Thomas (Berne) Bibliography 1 PCG VII, 1989, 604-607.

Sogenes

(36 words)

Author(s): Hidber, Thomas (Berne)
[German version] (Σωγένης; Sōgénēs). Poet of New Comedy, reached the fifth rank at the Attic Dionysia in 183 BC with his play Φιλοδέσποτος ('His Master's Friend') [1]. Hidber, Thomas (Berne) Bibliography 1 PCG VII, 1989, 593.

Heniochus

(107 words)

Author(s): Hidber, Thomas (Berne)
[German version] (Ἡνίοχος; Hēníochos). Writer of Middle Comedy, of whose work the Suda still mentions eight titles:Τροχίλος (‘Trochílos’), Ἐπίκληρος (‘The daughter heiress’), Γοργόνες (‘The Gorgons’), Πολυπράγμων (‘The Busybody’), Θωρύκιον (‘Thōrýkion’), Πολύευκτος (‘Polýeuktos’), Φιλέταιρος (‘Philhétairos’), Δὶς ἐξαπατώμενος (‘The Twice Deceived’) [1. test. 1]. Apart from the scanty remains of these plays preserved by Athenaeus (at least the dithyrambizing language of fr. 1 [2. 262] is noteworthy)…
