[1] The elder is evidently Marsyas of Pella, mu 227. The works cited by the Suda under Marsyas of Tabai may belong to Marsyas of Philippi: see mu 229. Heckel (below) p.448 postulates a date 'some time after 294 B.C.' for his period of activity.
For the fragmentary remains of Marsyas of Philippi see Jacoby FGrH 136.
