  • Antigenidas of Thebes, the musician, son of Satyrus or Dionysius, was a celebrated Greek aulos-player, and also a poet. He lived in the time of Alexander the Great. His two daughters, Melo and Satyra, who followed the profession of their father, are mentioned in an epigram of the Greek Anthology.[1] Gian Francesco Malipiero, Italian musician of the 20th century, composed an honorary Sinfonia per Antigenida [it] in 1962.
