[1] 432-429. In fact his plays (five titles survive) seem to have spanned the period 440-390. But be that as it may, these chronological indicators do fit an understanding of tw=n e)pideute/rwn, here and elsewhere (phi 763), as not a value-judgement (so LSJ etc.) but a simple matter of date. For evidence and argument to this effect see D. Harvey in D. Harvey and J. Wilkins (eds.), The Rivals of Aristophanes (London 2000) 108-110.
[2] cf. theta 611. The significance of the nickname is unclear.
