Aristophanes (Greek: Ἀριστοφάνης; born circa 446 – died circa 386 BC), son of Philippus, of the deme Kydathenaion (Latin: Cydathenaeum), was a Greek comic playwright of ancient Athens. Eleven of his forty plays survive virtually complete. These, together with fragments of some of his other plays, provide the only real examples of a genre of comic drama known as Old Comedy, and are used to define it.
