Brill's New Pauly: "Dictys Cretensis, ‘Dictys of Crete’ is the fictitious author of an alleged, laboriously corroborated authentic eyewitness account of the Trojan War (Ephemerìs toû Troikoû polémou). It not only includes a prelude that omits the judgement of Paris, but also relates the fate of the returning heroes. Only a few fragments remain of a possibly 2nd-cent. AD (?) Greek original, though we have a rendering in Latin by one L. Septimius some two cents. later...". Dictys Cretensis." Brill's New Pauly.
