C3 BCE; fragments in B. Snell (ed.), TGF 1.285-287. If the Suda's figure of '11' plays is correct, more of these titles must be alternatives than the one instance given; e.g. Persis or Polyxene. Confusion with a homonymous tragedian such as Nikomachos of Athens (to whom an Oedipus is ascribed in nu 397) is also possible. In any event, Eileithuia appears to be a comedy: see Kassel-Austin, PCG 7.56-61, at 57-59.
