Note:
Same or similar entry in other lexica: see the references at Photius mu272 Theodoridis. Perhaps here because it is a title of a lost comedy by Antidotus (C4 BCE); or possibly from Lucian (Timon 13 & 55, Prometheus 7, Jupiter Tragoedus 40). In any event, this attribute is no.17 in the Characters of Theophrastus.
Keywords: comedy; definition; ethics
