Definitions for crates

Here are all the possible meanings and translations of the word crates.


  1. Crates

    Crates was an Athenian Old Comic poet, who was victorious three times at the City Dionysia, first probably in the late 450s or very early 440s BCE; a scholium on Aristophanes Knights 537 reports that he was originally one of Cratinus' actors. Aristophanes at Knights 537–40 refers to him as an important representative of the previous generation, and according to Aristotle in the Poetics the influence of the Sicilian comic poets made him the first Athenian comic poet to abandon the ‘iambic’ style and produce plays with a connected storyline. The Suda reports that his brother was an epic poet named Epilycus.
