Son of Demophanes -- though others [say] of Stephanos -- and, as his mother, Oinoe; a Kian, though some [say] a Smyrnaian, and according to Dionysius a Rhodian; a comic poet of the middle comedy, [born] from slaves as some [say]. He was born in the 93rd Olympiad[1] and he wrote 365 comedies, though others [say] 280; he won 13 victories. He had a son Stephanos who was himself a comic poet. He died in Kios when he was 74 years old,[2] having by some chance been hit by a pear.[3]

[1] 408-405. Since one of the plays attributed to him (Kassel/Austin, PCG 2.312ff.) has an allusion to King Seleukos (I), and therefore can hardly be earlier than 306, some scholars have emended this birth-date (which is also found elsewhere) to a much later one. The orthodox solution, however, has been to postulate two comic poets of this name, the earlier one the more significant. For discussion and doxography see M.J. Osborne, Naturalization in Athens, vols.3-4 (Brussels 1983) 77-78.
[2] On orthodox assumptions (see the preceding note), 333-330.
