3 Paus. 2. 13. 6(i 138 Rocha-Pereira)
ἐνταῦθά ἐστι καὶ Ἀριστίου μνῆμα τοῦ Πρατίνου· τούτῳ τῷ Ἀριστίᾳ σάτυροι καὶ Πρατίνᾳ τῷ πατρί εἰσι πεποιημένοι πλὴν τῶν Αἰσχύλου δοκιμώτατοι.
4 Athen. 1. 22a (i 48 Kaibel)
φασὶ δὲ καὶ ὅτι οἱ ἀρχαῖοι ποιηταί, Θέσπις, Πρατίνας, 〚Κρατῖνος,〛 Φρύνιχος, ὀρχησταὶ ἐκαλοῦντο διὰ τὸ μὴ μόνον τὰ ἑαυτῶν δράματα ἀναφέρειν εἰς ὄρχησιν τοῦ χοροῦ, ἀλλὰ καὶ ἔξω τῶν ἰδίων ποιημάτων διδάσκειν τοὺς βουλομένους ὀρχεῖσθαι.
3 Pausanias, Description of Greece
Here1 too is the memorial of Aristias, son of Pratinas. This Aristias and Pratinas his father composed the finest satyr-plays except for those of Aeschylus.
4 Athenaeus, Scholars at Dinner
They say also that the ancient poets Thespis, Pratinas and Phrynichus were called ‘dancers’ because they not only made their plays dependent on the dancing of the chorus but quite apart from their own poetry they taught any who wanted to dance.
