Some late 4th-century comic fragments (antiph. Fr. 288 = TimoCl. Fr. 41 = Adesr Tr. Fr. 123a; Antiph. Fr. 167; Adesp. Com. Fr. 149) and Eratosthenes of Cyrene on demosthenes

Abstract

The seeming assignment of an iambic trimeter line (= adesp. tr. fr. 123 a) to Antiphanes (fr. 288) and Timocles (fr. 41) at Pseudo-Plutarch Lives of the Ten Orators 845 b, in the course of a brief description of Demosthenes' early career, is actually a reference to Antiph. fr. 167. 2-3, on the one hand, and to adesp. com. fr. 149 (which ought to be assigned to Timocles), on the other. Antiph. fr. 288 = Timocl. fr. 41 should thus be regarded as dubia at best.
