Translation:
A Cretan, a Maroneian, possessed by demons,[1] a writer of iambics. He wrote Farces, that is obscene verses, in Ionic dialect; for even these used to be called 'Ionic Stories'.[2] Others who worked in this genre were Alexandros the Aitolian and Pyres the Milesian and Theodoros and Timocharidas and Xenarchos. There are very many kinds of it, such as Descent into Hades, Priapos, In regard to Belestiche,[3] Amazon, etc.
Also Women Locked Up, and Ransomed, as Athenaeus says in Deipnosophists.[4]

Notes:
C3 BCE. See generally OCD4 s.v. Sotades(2) (and cf. already sigma 868).
[1] Something is textually amiss not only with this word but with everything so far, since Maroneia (mu 222) is not in Crete. Emend daimonisqei/s to de\ nomisqei/s, with Rohde: 'a Cretan, but considered a Maroneian'.
[2] For this sentence and the beginning of the next cf. phi 547.
[3] cf. beta 232.
[4] Athenaeus, Deipnosophists 7.293A-E [7.41 Kaibel] and 9.368A [9.5] -- but as one sees there, this material actually pertains to Sotades the Athenian comic poet (sigma 870).
