Suda, Sigma 871

Sotades of Maronea. A Cretan, a Maroneian, possessed by demons, a writer of iambics. He wrote Farces, that is obscene verses, in Ionic dialect; for even these used to be called 'Ionic Stories'. Others who worked in this genre were Alexandros the Aitolian and Pyres the Milesian and Theodoros and Timocharidas and Xenarchos. There are very many kinds of it, such as Descent into Hades, Priapos, In regard to Belestiche, Amazon, etc.
Also Women Locked Up, and Ransomed, as Athenaeus says in Deipnosophists.
