Headword: Ἡνίοχος
Adler number: eta,392
Translated headword: Heniochos, Heniochus
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
of Athens, poet of the Middle Comedy.[1] Among his dramas are these: Plover, Heiress, Busybody, Polyeuktos, True Friend, Twice Deceived.[2]
Concerning Polyeuktos: there appeared also a Polyeuktos in our time, unmentionable, half-woman, hateful to God, full of anger, terrible offspring of Cocytus and Styx, destructive to life.[3]
Greek Original:
Ἡνίοχος, Ἀθηναῖος, κωμικὸς τῆς μέσης κωμῳδίας. ἔστι τῶν δραμάτων αὐτοῦ τάδε: Τροχίλος, Ἐπίκληρος, Γοργόνες, Πολυπράγμων, Θωρύκιον, Πολύευκτος, Φιλέταιρος, Δὶς ἐξαπατώμενος. κατὰ Πολυεύκτου: ἐγένετο καὶ καθ' ἡμᾶς Πολύευκτος, ἀποφράς, ἡμιγύναιος, θεοστυγής, βαρυόργητος, Κωκυτοῦ καὶ Στυγὸς δεινὸν καὶ ὀλέθριον τῷ βίῳ ἐκλόχευμα.
Notes:
[1] C4 BCE; PCG 5.552ff.
[2] For some of these titles see Athenaeus Deipnosophists 6.271A [6.100 Kaibel] (Busybody), 9.396D [9.54] (Polyeuktos), 9.408A [9.74] (Plover). At pi 1959 the names Heniochos (which means Charioteer: LGPN ii has 7 instances besides this one) and Polyeuktos are reversed, to create a non-existent comic poet Polyeuktos.
[3] As at pi 1959, this passage appears to be a later addition to the Suda, inserted by a critic of the patriarch Polyeuktos in or close to his own time. Polyeuktos was patriarch of Constantinople from 956 to 970. (The Styx and its tributary the Cocytus were two of the rivers of the underworld: Homer, Odyssey 10.514, etc.)
