Translation:
Son of Astycles; of Chios or Samos;[1] epic poet. Some record that he was Homer's son-in-law, his daughter's husband; others say he was only a friend of Homer, and that in return for his hospitality to Homer he received from him the poem The Capture of Oechalia.[2]
Greek Original:
Κρεώφυλος, Ἀστυκλέους, Χῖος ἢ Σάμιος, ἐποποιός. τινὲς δὲ αὐτὸν ἱστόρησαν Ὁμήρου γαμβρὸν ἐπὶ θυγατρί. οἱ δὲ φίλον μόνον γεγονέναι αὐτὸν Ὁμήρου λέγουσι καὶ ὑποδεξάμενον Ὅμηρον λαβεῖν παρ' αὐτοῦ τὸ ποίημα τὴν τῆς Οἰχαλίας ἅλωσιν.
