Topic: 448 BCE


  
  Agathon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
He is best known from his mention by Aristophanes (Thesmophoriazusae) and in Plato's Symposium, which describes the banquet given to celebrate his obtaining a prize for his first tragedy (416).
His intimacy with Aristophanes doubtless saved him from many well-deserved strictures, though in one of his comedies, the latter burlesques his flowery style, representing him as a delicate and effeminate youth, and it may be only for the sake of punning on his name that he makes Dionysus call him a noble poet.
Agathon was a friend of Euripides, accompanying him to the court of Archelaus of Macedon, where he died about 402 BCE.
