C5/4 BCE; see generally K.J. Dover in OCD4 s.v. The present Suda entry is testimonium #1 in Kassel-Austin (see bibliography); they print 'comic poet' (see n. 1 below).
[1] A manuscript error for comic poet. The tragedic titles amongst his plays were parodies.
[2] Or perhaps The Man-destroyer - A)nqrwporai/sths. See a scholion on Euripides, Orestes 279; Athenaeus, Deipnosophists 3.127C [3.101 Kaibel].
[3] Or Lemnomeda, if this is the play mentioned by Athenaeus, Deipnosophists 7.327E [7.133 Kaibel] and 11.473C [11.46].
[4] Athenaeus, Deipnosophists 9.396A [9.52 Kaibel] and 13.589A [13.55] refers to The Macedonians or Pausanias.
[5] Apparently 2.69A [2.79 Kaibel], where (with a modicum of emendation) Athenaeus can be made to refer to the last-named of these plays. Alternatively, emend "second" book to "twelfth", where it certainly is (551C = 12.75 Kaibel) named.
Kassel R. and C. Austin (eds.), Poetae comici Graeci (PCG), Berlin and N.Y.: W. de Gruyter, 1983- . The testimonia and fragments of Strattis are in v.7, pp.623-660.
