Abstract: The poet Lycophron, born about 330-325 B.C., was a native of Chalcis in Euboea and spent most of his life at Alexandria in Egypt. He was the natural son of Socles and the adopted son of the historian Lycus of Rhegium. In the reign of Ptolemy II Philadelphus (285-247 B.C.) he was commissioned to arrange the Comic Poets in the Royal Library in Alexandria. He wrote a number of tragedies and was given the name by the later Alexandrine scholars.
