Boiscus

(98 words)

Author(s): Di Marco, Massimo (Fondi Latina)
[German version] (Βοΐσκος; Boḯskos) from Cyzicus. Mar. Vict. 2,4,30 (VI 82 Keil) and Rufin. 1,28 (VI 564 Keil) have transmitted an unusually catalectic iambic octometer of his (= SH 233); B., who calls himself καινοῦ γραφεὺς ποιήματος (‘writer of new poetry’), declares his pride in developing this verse. B. can perhaps be identified with the eponymous ποιητὴς καινῆς κωμῳδίας (‘writer of New Comedy’) who won a victory at Thespiae around 100 BC (IG VII 1761); cf. [1;2].

Axiopistus

(249 words)

Author(s): Di Marco, Massimo (Fondi Latina)
[German version] (Ἀξιόπιστος; Axiópistos) from Locris or Sicyon. He probably lived in the 4th cent. BC and is the author of two books, Κανών ( Kanṓn) and Γνῶμαι ( Gnômai), which were published under Epicharmus' name (Ath. 14,648d = Philoch. FGrH 328 F 79; Apollod. FRrH 244 F 226).

CGF I p. 7,18 Kaibel) certainly encouraged the tendency towards forgeries at a very early stage. It is in any case very difficult to …
