Hērōdas or Herondas (c.300–250 BC), native of Cos or Miletus, a Greek writer of literary mimes, mimiambi, in the Ionic dialect and in scazons (see METRE, GREEK 2). Only a few fragments existed in quotation until the publication in 1891 of a papyrus found in Egypt to which other fragments were later added. There now exist mimes 1–7 complete, and 8 and 9 in a fragmentary state. These are short, dramatic vignettes, probably intended for private reading rather than for solo performance, and present with vividness and humour scenes typical of mime, drawn from city life: the bawd, the pimp, the schoolmaster, the women worshippers, the jealous mistress, the private conversation, the shoemaker, the dream, women entertaining.
n. A form of ancient Greek and Roman theatrical entertainment in which familiar characters and situations were farcically portrayed on stage, often with coarse dialogue and ludicrous actions. 周作人譯為"擬曲"
