Ceceides (Kekeides), of Hermione, a very ancient Greek dithyrambic poet, whom Aristophanes (Nub. 981) reckons among those who belonged to the good old times, but had become obsolete in his own days. The Scholiast on that passage remarks, that Ceceides was also mentioned by the comic poet Cratinus in his "Panoptae". (Comp. Suidas, s. v. Kekidios)
Cydias, one of the early Greek poets whom Plutarch (de Fac. in Orb. Lun.) classes together
with Mimnermus and Archilochus. Whether he is the same as the author of a song
which was very popular at Athens in the time of Aristophanes, who however is called
by the Scholiast (ad Nub. 966) Cydides of Hermione, is uncertain (Plat. Charm.).
Callinus, of Hermione, was a friend of the philosopher Lycon, who bequeathed to him in his will the works which he had not yet published. (Diog. Laert. v. 70-74.)
