Extract

Anaxilas (2), Middle Comedy poet (see comedy (greek), middle), can be dated to the middle of the 4th cent. bce by the fact that in three of his plays (Diog. Laert. 3. 28) he ridiculed *Plato (1). We have nineteen titles and some 40 citations, the longest of which (fr. 22 KA, from Neottis) characterizes well-known *hetairai.
