A Greek poet and grammarian, native of Chalcis in Euboea; lived in the third century B. C. He had a part in organizing the Alexandrine Library. He was classed as a tragic poet with the "Pleiad", so called. One poem alone of his numerous compositions remains: "Alexandra", which contains, in 1474 iambic verses, a prophecy of Cassandra relating to the fall of Troy and the fortunes of the heroes therein concerned.
