Son of Phylarchides, of Mallos,[1] tragic poet. This man was a member of the Pleiad,[2] and he also wrote, amongst other things, Characters or Comedy-lovers,[3] in which he describes the characters of the [comic] poets.[4]
Apollonion [is] shorthand for shrine of Apollo.[5]
Greek Original:
Διονυσιάδης, Φυλαρχίδου, Μαλλώτης, τραγικός. ἦν δὲ οὗτος τῶν τῆς Πλειάδος, καὶ γέγραπται αὐτῷ μεταξὺ ἄλλων καὶ Χαρακτῆρες ἢ Φιλοκώμῳδοι, ἐν ᾧ τοὺς χαρακτῆρας ἀπαγγέλλει τῶν ποιητῶν. ὅτι Ἀπολλώνιον βραχέως τὸ ἱερὸν τοῦ Ἀπόλλωνος.
First half of C3 BC.
[1] In Cilicia (southern Turkey); again at mu 119.
[2] A "brilliant group of seven [Hellenistic] tragedians": R. Pfeiffer, A History of Classical Scholarship (Oxford 1968) 119. For other members see alpha 1127, lambda 827, omicron 253, sigma 860, sigma 863, tau 894, phi 358.
[3] Perhaps, rather, in the singular: Comedy-lover (so A. Meineke).
[4] Whatever its exact title(s) -- see preceding note -- this work "looks like the first effort to distinguish the style of the Attic comic poets and may have been the source of later treatises" (Pfeiffer op.cit. 160).
[5] Quoted from alpha 3418 -- but misplaced here, as it belongs, if anywhere, with delta 1168.
