i Suda ε 2766

Ἐπίχαρμος . . . ἦν δὲ πρὸ τῶν Περσικῶν ἔτη ἕξ, διδάσκων ἐν Συρακούσαις· ἐν δὲ Ἀθήναις Εὐέτης καὶ Εὐξενίδης καὶ Μύλλος ἐπεδείκνυντο.

Euxenides

The sole evidence for the existence of this poet is the testimony of the Suda (T 1), which if trustworthy places Euxenides among the very earliest comic poets, active in the 480s.

Testimonium

i Epicharmus: he was active six years before the Persian Wars [486/5] producing plays in Syracuse. At Athens Euetes and Euxenides and Myllus were putting on plays.
