Alcimenes

This figure depends for his inclusion on identifying the comic poet known from the Suda (T 1) with a restored name on the comic victors’ list for the City Dionysia (T 2) as Alcimenes. The latter is found on that list between those of Magnes (victor in 472) and Euphronius (victor in 458). If this is Alcimenes, then he was active in the 460s.
