Vetting Status: high
Translation:
An Athenian, a writer of comedy, whose brother was the epic poet Epilykos.[1] His plays are 7 [in number]:[2] Neighbours, Heroes, Wild animals, Lamia, Prisoners in chains,[3] Samians. He also wrote some prose works.
Greek Original:
Κράτης, Ἀθηναῖος, κωμικός: οὗ ἦν ἀδελφὸς Ἐπίλυκος, ποιητὴς ἐπῶν. δράματα δὲ αὐτοῦ εἰσιν ζ#: Γείτονες, Ἥρωες, Θηρία, Λάμια, Πεδῆται, Σάμιοι. ἔγραψε δὲ καὶ καταλογάδην τινά.
Notes:
Old Comedy (mid fifth century BCE); see generally K.J. Dover in OCD(4) s.v. Crates(1).
[1] Not otherwise known. Perhaps a mistake for the comic poet of that name. See G. Kaibel 'Epilykos (3)' in RE 6,1 cols.158-159.
[2] The titles of only six plays are given; Jungermann proposed adding Tolmai. But the Greek signs for the numerals six and seven were easily confused by a copyist.
[3] Perhaps the play by Kallias, and so wrongly attributed here. See Korte col.1624 ; The Rivals of Aristophanes p. 513.
