Smith's Dictionary of Greek and Roman Biography and Mythology, Vol 1, 1867, p. 753-754: "Cinesias, a dithyrambic poetof Athens....His talents are said to have been of a very inferior order.."
Brill's New Pauly:" Athenian dithyrambic poet, whose creative period ranged from c. 425 to 390 BC. His father Meles (Pl. Grg. 501e-502a) is referred to in Pherecrates' Ágrioi (PCG VII 6, cf. Aristoph. Av. 766) as the worst kitharode imaginable.... C. was a favourite target for mockery by comic poets. Pherecrates in his Cheírōn has Music accusing him as one amongst others responsible for the decline of the dithyrambus....In Lysistrátē, C. has to lend his name to Myrrhine's ridiculous husband. No fragments of C. himself have survived..." from Robbins, Emmet (Toronto). "Cinesias." Brill's New Pauly. Antiquity volumes edited by: Hubert Cancik and Helmuth Schneider . Brill, 2009.
