Brill's New Pauly: "L. of Hermione Poet, c. 500 BC, in the Argolis (incorrectly in the Suda: Achaia). The Suda places his date of birth in the 58th Oympiad. (548-544 BC). Like Anacreon and Simonides, this Greek poet was under the patronage of Hipparchus in Athens. According to Hdt. 7,6, Onomacritus was expelled by Hipparchus when L. caught him forging oracles of Musaeus. The Schol. Aristoph. Av. 1403 quotes authorities who consider L. the first organizer of dithyrambic choruses positioned in a circle, rather than Arion
according to the Suda, on the other hand, he introduced dithyrambic contests...." Robbins, Emmet (Toronto)
