Dares Phrygius

, a Trojan priest, celebrated by Homer, is said to have written a history of the Trojan war, which yElian speaks of as extant in his time, but it is now lost, and that which goes under his name is supposed to have been the work of Septimus Romanus, who flourished about the year 370. There are editions of it of the dates 1472, 1541, and one at London, 1675, but it has most generally been printed with Dictys Cretensis, another author of doubtful authenticy. 2
