i Suda κ 2340
Κράτης, Ἀθηναῖος, κωμικὸς καὶ αὐτὸς τῆς ἀρχαίας κωμῳδίας. φέρεται αὐτοῦ δράματα τρία, Θησαυρός, Ὄρνιθες, Φιλάργυρος.
The entry in the Suda to Crates (κ 2339) is followed immediately by κ 2340, where another Crates of Old Comedy is recorded with three titles, none of which is ever mentioned or cited elsewhere. Diogenes Laertius (see above T 2) knows of only one comic poet of that name. Of the three titles preserved, Treasure is a common title in Middle and New Comedy, but nothing like it appears in Old Comedy, while Money-Lover sounds like the type of character again frequent in later comedy. The easiest explanation is that a poet named Crates from the fourth century has been erroneously described as a “poet of Old Comedy.”Testimonium
i Crates: of Athens, himself also a poet of Old Comedy. Three plays by him are preserved: Treasure, Birds, Money-Lover.
