Athenian, comic poet, son of Lysimachos, who was nicknamed Schoinion [Ropey] because his father was a rope-plaiter. His plays are The Egyptian, Atalanta, The Cyclopes,[1] The Prisoners, The Frogs, The Idlers[2].
See [more] about Kallias under 'Aristeides'.[3]
Greek Original:
Καλλίας, Ἀθηναῖος, κωμικός, υἱὸς Λυσιμάχου: ὃς ἐπεκλήθη Σχοινίων διὰ τὸ σχοινοπλόκου εἶναι πατρός. οὗ δράματα Αἰγύπτιος, Ἀταλάντη, Κύκλωπες, Πεδῆται, Βάτραχοι, Σχολάζοντες. ζήτει περὶ Καλλίου ἐν τῷ Ἀριστείδης.
Notes:
C5 BCE; see generally K.J. Dover in OCD(4) under Callias(2).
[1] Quoted at alpha 3750.
[2] An inscribed list (IGUR 216.1-6 = Callias test. 4 Kassel-Austin) of all the productions of a comic poet whose name has been lost, but who can be identified with fair certainty as Kallias, gives us two further titles, The Satyrs and The Iron [...]. It also supplies dates or approximate dates for several productions, all in the 440s and 430s.
[3] alpha 3903 (but not the same Kallias: rather, an earlier one who was a relative of Aristeides; see Plutarch, Life of Aristeides 25). The confusion presumably arose because the fathers of both the poet and Aristeides had the name Lysimachos.
