Stratonicus (in Greek Στρατoνικoς; lived 4th century BC), of Athens, was a distinguished musician of the time of Alexander the Great (336– - 323 BC), of whom scarcely anything is recorded, except the sharp and witty rebuke which he administered to Philotas, when the latter boasted of a victory which he had gained over Timotheus. It is told that Nicocles, king of Cyprus, killed him for some satyric pieces he had composed on Nicocles' sons. 1
