The present discussion draws attention to an unnoticed fragment of Sotades of Maroneia in the anecdote about the encounter of Tachos and Agesilaus in Ath. XIV 616d-e. It is further argued that this fragment was a part, alongside the invective against Ptolemy II as attested by frr. 1 and 16 Pow., of Sotades’ series of poems (or one longer poem) on monarchs, the context for which was probably provided by the literary tradition of the dialogue between a ruler and a sage. The appendix contains an edition of the fragments that may be ascribed to this lost poetic work.
